Fathima is the creative brain behind HAPPINESS IS, which is not only her illustration and design business but also her blog where she shares her love of cats, coffee shops ,and her beautifully created illustrations.
I first met Fathima over coffee when she was awesome enough to review our MACARON OF THE MONTH BOX. Our next meeting was at the NATIONAL COOKIE SWAP where I tasted her SNICKERDOODLE BISCUITS and have been lusting after them ever since. Now you have to understand that to me any baked goods covered in cinnamon are basically heaven sent, and these beauties were no exception. So when she told me that she would be sharing her Snickerdoodle recipe I did about 100 backflips (on the inside of course) and very politely thanked her.
I personally cannot wait to try this recipe out myself and I see it possibly becoming a weekly treat in my home.
These are probably my absolute favourite homemade biscuits. This recipe reminds me of when I was little, my mom used to make them a lot and I’ve always loved their cinnamony flavour. They’ve got a lovely warm, comforting kind of taste and are pretty quick and simple to make, so no hassle! Great to have with tea while snuggled up on a cool winter day

Do you love this recipe as much as I do? Let me know if you try it and for an extra bit of yum, why not add a rolo to the centre of your dough before you bake it! ( You are welcome! )
