I've been thinking long and hard about this, because it's really important. I'm pretty sure snickerdoodles are my most favorite cookie of all time.
I've always been a sucker for anything with cinnamon sugar. On the rare occasion I find myself in a donut shop, I always go for the cinnamon twist. And I don't know if Einstein Bagels still exists, but I used to eat the mess out of their cinnamon sugar bagels back in the day. YUM. The 90s were just one giant carbfest, am I right?
Back to snickerdoodles. There are a lot of grain free recipes out there with very little variation (seriously, google it). I think that's just because it's a fairly simple taste. The standard almond flour with a bit of coconut flour, butter, sugar, and either baking powder or cream of tartar. Variations are typically based on whether or not you're doing strict paleo ... otherwise bring on the butter! And of course there's cinnamon and sugar. I also like to throw in a little nutmeg for that extra bit of spice.
The BEST thing about this recipe is the dough isn't sticky at all, so it rolls into dough balls super easily. No, that's not true. That's the second best thing. The absolute BEST thing about this recipe is they have perfect consistency and flavor. My 90s self would have eaten these by the dozen.
*I've added notes for substitutions if you choose to do a paleo version.
