Snickerdoodle Melting Moments

This year was probably my favorite Christmas gift-giving wise. Rather than wasting all my time worrying about getting someone the “perfect thing” or waiting in long lines, I baked everyone in my family something they would really like! So for my cousin, who clearly loves anything with cinnamon (as you can tell by the Snickerdoodle Cake I baked her for her birthday), I made melting moments. But I decided to kick them up a notch by coating them with some cinnamon sugar and making them into sandwiches with some cream cheese stuffed between them.

  • 1 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup cornstarch
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 cup unsalted butter, room temperature
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 tablespoons ground cinnamon
  1. Preheat an oven to 350° F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper
  2. Cream the butter and powdered sugar together until light and fluffy
  3. Add the vanilla extract and beat well
  4. Sift the flour and cornflour together and add to the butter mixture.  Beat until the mixture comes together in a smooth ball
  5. Sift together the granulated sugar and cinnamon
  6. Divide the mixture into 30 even portions.  Roll each portion into a ball and roll in the cinnamon sugar mixture to coat. Use a fork dipped in cornflour to flatten the cookies
  7. Bake for 12 – 14 minutes or until a pale gold color
  8. Allow to cool and then sandwich with cream cheese filling
