Exams and Snickerdoodles

Hello again, it's exam time for me at the moment. It's stressful and crazy but it goes by very quickly. I am now in my fourth year of university, and I've become quite the expert at procrastination. As I was taking out my books and study notes, I stumbled upon the VegNews Holiday Cookie Contest (don't ask me how these things happen, I have no idea!). Naturally, I got the urge to make cookies... So I did, obviously. I've been meaning to try out a recipe my friend gave to me. She had made me some snickerdoodle cookies for my birthday and they were amazing! I've had the recipe for a while, but I've been in cupcake mode lately. So I figured, perfect! I'll test it out, I need food while I'm studying anyways (doesn't every student use this excuse?). Thank goodness I had JUST enough Earth Balance butter left. Here is the recipe she gave me, complete with notes:

Snickerdoodle cookies

3/4 cup of flour
1/4 tsp of cinammon
3/4 tsp of Baking powder
1/4 cup of sugar
5 tbsp of non dairy butter
3/4 tbsp of vanilla
2 tbsp of almond / soy / coconut milk

Roll in 1 tbsp of cinammon
and 2 tbsp of sugar

Heat at 350 for 10 mins (I did 13)
Directions are simple: mix the dry ingredients and mix the wet ingredients, then combine. (I did whip the sugar and butter in the mixer to make it flufflier)

Here's how they tuned out:

Got my batter ready and my rolling-in-cinnamon-sugar bowl station all set up for the rolling, coating, placing, fork-smooshing process.

Sending them to the oven.....

Done! They turned out great :) I think I'll be making some of these as gifts for christmas! Needless to say, they didn't last very long... Brain food, right?!
Take care everyone, see you again soon!
