How to Make Crispy Peanut Butter Snickerdoodles: Easy & Delicious

Plate of Peanut Butter Snickerdoodles

My peanut butter snickerdoodles are a delicious take off of the classic recipe with that chewy, crisper texture complimented by cinnamon and sugar. I added cinnamon in the cookie dough as well as the topping that elevated the taste even more.

What Makes These Crispy Snickerdoodles Special

  1. Flavor: The combination of peanut butter adds a delightful twist to the cinnamon and sugar for an unbelievable scrumptious taste.
  2. Ease: This peanut butter snickerdoodle recipe is so easy that you will hardly believe it. This is a one mixing bowl cookie recipe. The reason it is so simple is because there is less creaming involved, which saves time and baking effort. Furthermore, this cookie dough is workable and easy to handle.
  3. Shaping: After rolling the cookie dough into small balls using heaping teaspoons followed by coating them with the topping, you’ll press these snickerdoodles down with a fork. This helps provide additional crispness to these wonderful cookies.
  4. Texture: This recipe produces chewy and crispy snickerdoodles in keeping as true with the classic version of these cookies as possible.
  5. Health: Instead of artery clogging shortening or butter, my recipe uses canola oil, which is the best and healthy vegetable oil that is also ideal for baking. I did use salt in this recipe, but if you’re watching your sodium intake, then by all means eliminate it.
