Snickerdoodle Cupcakes

These Snickerdoodle Cupcakes are some of the best cupcakes I have ever made, or even tried. The cupcake itself really does taste like the cookie after which it is named, and the frosting is cinnamony-sweet and creamy. The perfect treat for any cupcake or Snickerdoodle fan!

My sister’s boyfriend is celebrating a birthday this weekend and she was determined to make a cupcake fashioned after his favorite cookie. After searching a bit through my favorite baking blogs, we found a recipe at Since they looked so easy to make, and Amy promised they would be delicious, we went for it.


Amy’s Snickerdoodle Cupcakes quickly became a favorite!

Rachel and I made five dozen cupcakes, topping them each with a home-baked mini Snickerdoodle cookie. They were a big hit with Josh and their party guests.

Yesterday I made another two dozen and brought some to my brother, Jacob, and his wife, Annie, who had just welcomed their beautiful daughter in to this world.

These cupcakes are sure to make an appearance at many family gatherings!

    I made them and they taste great! only thing though – my frosting came out a little dark?! Is it normally a little dark and they look so light in the photo because of the flash?? HAHA
    Anyways — they did taste good – thanks for the recipe!

      I am so glad you enjoyed them, Melinda!

      I didn’t use a flash, but your frosting may have been darker because of the color of your vanilla extract, or even due to the fact you used slightly more cinnamon, or possibly less powdered sugar. I don’t know… I’m guessing!
