|After cooling I made up a big sack of both snicker doodles and oatmeal cookies and placed them in a birthday gift bag adding tissue paper and a birthday card to finish the home made gift!|
|A hot cup of coffee and a few snicker doodles hit the spot every time.|
My helpful hints are :
When making two different cookie doughs in one day make the plainest one first then you can reuse the bowl, beaters, and utensils again for the second batch without washing. Thus I made the snicker doodles first.
When using a scoop to dip up cookie batter as I did with the snicker doodles dip the scoop into a half cup of sugar between scoops. The batter will not stick to the scoop.
Use the left over "scooping" sugar in the second batch of cookies as part of the sugar needed in the batter. *I also used the leftover cinnamon and sugar mixture from rolling the dough balls in as part of the required sugar in the oatmeal cookies. A little extra cinnamon never hurt an oatmeal cookie!
So, love in a cookie is always a welcome gift says Grandma Diane!
