Since I was little, playing with (my) food has been a favorite pastime. So has making puns. Combine these two things and you get SnickerPoodles! Before moving here from Canada, I hadn't ever met American snickerdoodle cookies before - and what a shame! They are an amazing balance of crispy/chewy. Add a dash of poodle shaped fun and you have, in my opinion, the perfect cookie.

*Thanks to Blair Emanuel for being a great model and cookie making cohort!

This just cracked me up! What a clever cookie project and such great photography!

Since you mentioned engagement parties, there's a wedding tradition where I'm originally from (Southwestern Pennsylvania) that at a wedding, friends and family of the couple make *dozens* of cookies for the reception. There's even a separate table for guests to set them out and often caterers will take them and plate them. SnickerPoodles would be a huge hit at any cookie table!


Hi Paige,

Just wanted to say that I was having a not great day then I saw these and they made me happy. Thanks

Thanks so much for letting me know auntbecky92! I had a lot of fun making these. I hope you have a wonderful, brand new day tomorrow.

Oh man, I somehow missed seeing these in person, but they are adorable!
