Cookie Conversion

Of all the homemade cookies out there, I would have to say that the Snickerdoodle is my favorite. Now my mom’s snickerdoodles were just a little different than everyone else’s, for she adds nutmeg to the batter. A secret she would most likely get angry at me telling, but since she is hardly on the computer, I may have escaped a lecture. Anyway, I saw a while back and event called Muffin Monday, which I missed but put muffins on my mind. I created these awhile back but haven’t made them for years. What is so great about them is that they are rolled in cinnamon sugar just like the cookie so the top gets nice an crunchy while the muffin is nice and moist. In fact looking down at it, you would think you were just looking at a Snickerdoodle cookie(see below).

Snickerdoodle Muffins

2 sticks unsalted butter
1 cup sugar
2 tsp vanilla
2 eggs
¾ tsp baking soda
¾ tsp baking powder
¾ tsp cream of tarter
¾ tsp freshly grated nutmeg
1 and ¼ cup sour cream
2 and ¼ cups all purpose flour

1 cup sugar and 2 TBSP cinnamon mixed together for rolling

1.Cream the butter and sugar until soft about 3 to 5 minutes. Add in the vanilla. Add in the eggs one at a time and mix until each is incorporated.
2.In a separate, mix together the flour, nutmeg,baking soda, and baking powder and cream of tarter.
3.Add the flour mixture and the sour cream alternately to the egg-butter mixture in the additions. Start with the flour and end with the flour. Scrape the bowl occasionally.
4. Using an ice cream scoop, scoop out  muffin batter one at a time and drop into a shallow bowl filled with the cinnamon sugar mixture. Roll the muffin around in the mixture until it is covered completely in cinnamon sugar.. Place muffin into a greased muffin tin.. Depending on the size of your tins, you should get about 12 to 14 muffins. Bake them for approx. 20-22 minutes in a 350F oven or until they are golden brown.

And yet another reminder that this Saturday March 17th(St. Patty’s Day) all entries for HHDD#10 Cheesecake are due! So get those entries in if you haven’t already done so!!!




  1. I just took these out of the oven and they came out delicious. I don’t think they will last long. Thanks for the recipe.

  2. Hi, these look so good! Just wondering if mini muffin tins would work? And how long do you think they would need to bake? Thanks!

  3. Mini should work my guess is 12-15 minutes

  4. Batter yielded 18 muffins. All baked with small crowns. I hope they can be frozen. Took about 1 hour to mix and 22 minutes to bake.

  2. […] i won’t lie to you. when eating this, you can’t be expecting a gooey double chocolate muffin that will satisfy your every sweet-tooth craving. this is no snickerdoodle muffin (which is another recipe i am dying to try once i start baking those sweet things again). however, this muffin is beneficial for your healthy eating purposes. and i think it tasted quite good (ha ha. especially with my expert addition of cardamom). so enjoy! and eat well!

  3. […] Yes, I finally jumped on the bandwagon and made Peabody’s Snickerdoodle Muffins… and I have to say, I totally understand the hype now! The dough was incredibly easy, made entirely from pantry items (except the sour cream… but how hard is it to get sour cream?) and rolling the dough in sugar before plopping it in the muffins tin made me giddy! Hee hee. […]

  4. […] I wish I could take credit for this amazing discovery but sadly no, it came from the genius Peabody, and I’m sure she’ll be nominated for a Nobel culinary prize or something for her astounding invention. I’ll admit that while I loved the concept of the muffin I wasn’t crazy about the recipe itself, mostly because it involved a mixer and a creaming technique with the butter and sugar. I generally think of muffins to be a type of quickbread that is formed from melted butter, egg, and milk combined with the dry ingredients and then quickly stirred. So I made some changes and came up with this recipe: […]
