Exquisite recipe. Texture, flavor, and presentation are excellent. I added a little vanilla and almond extract.


I ordered the Chicago Spice Sugar and tried it plain & I did not like it at ALL. So, I wanted to hurry up and get rid of it, so I had to try a recipe suggested with this sugar.
I decided on this Snickerdoodles Cookie recipe. I sampled the cookie dough and it was infused with too much Cream of Tartar, however when the finished product come out of the oven, boy was my taste buds amazed. This is a really delicious cookie!

I like that it isn't as sweet as the traditional Snickerdoodle recipe. The less sweet cookie gives the cinnamon and other spices in the Old Towne Spiced Sugar a chance to stand out instead of being a plain sugar cookie with cinnamon.
