Snickerdoodle Recipe UK

Our easy Snickerdoodle Recipe (UK) makes ‘Jaffa cake’-like, fluffy Snickerdoodles. Delicious buttery, cinnamon & sugar biscuits – perfect for a special treat.

This is a traditional American Snickerdoodles recipe adapted for the UK home cook. The classic combination of cinnamon, sugar, butter, and flour produces a delicious biscuit (although my all co-workers called them “cakes”).  A satisfying treat alongside a good cuppa.

Fluffy Snickerdoodles

Our Snickerdoodle recipe (UK) produces snickerdoodle cookies that are a bit of a surprise. Some people expect a flat biscuit but these have a more fluffy, cake texture. Our fluffy Snickerdoodles are just the right amount of sweet and are very moreish.

How to make Snickerdoodles

A Favourite for School Fetes, Afternoon Tea and Treats for the Office

Snickerdoodles are one of my favourite recipes to make up and give away. Our Snickerdoodle recipe (UK) is easy to make and great for kids. They can help with rolling the dough balls in the cinnamon & sugar mixture before baking.

The team in the office scoffed these at their 1020 AM tea break. Taking the time to bake homemade treats is a great way to get your co-workers out of their routine and really get to know them.

Our fluffy Snickerdoodles recipe makes between two and three dozen cookies depending on how big you make the balls. Bake once and feed a crowd or bake & freeze for easy treats when you are pressed for time.

You can use this recipe for fundraisers, birthdays or just because!

Fluffy Snickerdoodles come from #FlourPower

These Snickerdoodles will have a cake-light consistency – think of them more as a Jaffa Cake. For our Snickerdoodle recipe (UK), we used Matthews Cotswold Flours Maizebite Flour. We find that compared to standard plain flour, Matthews Cotswold Flour enhances the butter and cinnamon/sugar taste. These biscuits are just a bit sweet, buttery and moreish. A very adult biscuit with a cup of tea or coffee.
