    I love snickerdoodles. We've recently been making snickerdoodle bars, our current favorite rendition of this classic treat. But now I need to make these cupcakes. You say they should be eaten the same day they are frosted… I don't think will be a problem πŸ™‚

    I was going to try these but use cream cheese icing instead. Do you think that would work?

    Love this, I've posted this recipe as well but have yet to make it which is shameful as my blog is called Snickerdoodles and I've been making the cookie version for years. Your photos and descriptions have inspired me to give it a go.

    One of my readers shared your link and I am so glad they did!

    These look so good! But for the frosting, I don't have a candy thermometer. Is there a “tell” that lets me know it's at 230, or a time estimate? If not, I might just have to beg to borrow one from somebody.

      You should really use a candy thermometer for this recipe. They're not that expensive at all – Target, Walmart, Bed Bath & Beyond should have them for $5-$10 (if you're in the states). Otherwise you can always find a different frosting recipe that doesn't require a thermometer.

    If I may add… my most popular cake flavor was snickerdoodle. I used 1/2 white sugar, 1/2 brown sugar to get a true sugar cookie flavor in the cupcake!

    I made these lovely cupcakes today. They are divine! I did find the recipe for the frosting produced a lot, though. Way more than I needed for 24 cupcakes. Next time I’ll cut that part of the recipe in half. Will definitely make again! Thank you for sharing, Tessa!
