Gluten-Free Snickerdoodles made with almond flour and rolled in cinnamon and organic cane sugar for a soft and chewy dairy-free cookie!
I hope you haven't yet tired of cookies. This will be my last cookie post of the holiday season, but I assure you it's not one to miss. I've long thought the blog was in need of a snickerdoodle recipe, and today, my friends, is the day.
Adapted from my chewy gingersnaps, this simple recipe uses almond flour, which I think, along with the cream of tartar and bit of honey, makes for a wonderful crumb and just the right amount of chewiness.
A coating of cinnamon and organic cane sugar on the outside makes for that sweet snickerdoodle crunch. As a bonus, these cookies keep quite well. No worries about next-day stale cookies here! Just more days to enjoy, and I hope you do.
