If you’re a fan of the snickerdoodle, you’ll thank yourself for making these Megadoodle Cookies! They take the snickerdoodle to whole new levels of awesome with phenomenal improvements like crushed pretzels, white chocolate chips, and a cinnamon buttercream frosting!
Probably my favorite cookie in the history of cookies is the Snickerdoodle. Sure, I’ll never turn down a good Chocolate Chip Cookie (a close second on my list), but the Snickerdoodle (only if it’s soft) holds a special place in my cookie-loving heart.
I just love the cinnamon sugar coating and the unique, subtle tang from the cream of tartar contrasted with all the sweet. The flavor is unbeatable! So, as of about a week ago, I was pretty content believing that the snickerdoodle was perfect in its current state. It could get no better. That is, until my son (he’s eight) brought up the idea of the “Megadoodle”! I know, it sounds like something out of a kid movie. 🙂
He started by saying, “Mom, you know how amazing snickerdoodle cookies are?” (this is coming from the guy who could probably eat a dozen in one sitting, if allowed) and I was like, “I’m totally with you there, buddy.”
And then he continued, “Well, what if we made them even better by frosting them and then called them “The Megadoodle?!”
I always knew he was a genius, but now I’m 110% sure of it! (And now there’s also no doubt in my mind that he’s been watching altogether too many cartoons, lol.)
So I bolted to the kitchen and whipped out these beauties! I took it a step or two further by adding in white chocolate chips and crushed pretzels for that perfect sweet and salty flavor and crunchy texture!
And now I’m wondering, with all the millions of diverse and incredible cookies that have come out of my kitchen, why the Megadoodle has not been among them until now. The world has seriously been missing out!
I’m pretty sure you’re going to fall head over heels in love with these cookies, just like we did! I can’t wait for you to try them! Let me know what you think!
