Snickerdoodle Cupcakes

Snickerdoodle. Say that three times fast! You may be asking what the heck is a snickerdoodle?! I was seeing them everywhere and learned what they were by a Google search. Snickerdoodles are a type of cookie made with cinnamon and sugar. However, that particular flavour has leaked into way more than just a regular cookie. Now you can find Snickerdoodle cakes, squares, smoothies and cupcakes! Today I’ve got a yummy Snickerdoodle Cupcake recipe to share.
