This is week nine of the 12 Weeks of Christmas Treats 2012 hosted by Brenda from Meal Planning Magic.
I am continuing to post recipes utilizing the Holiday Cookie Mix. Today’s cookie I call Spiced Ciderdoodles. A little envelope of dry spiced cider mix turns these into slightly apple flavored cookies. If regular Snickerdoodles are preferred just leave out the cider mix.
I roll these in a mixture of sugar and apple pie spice, but sugar and just cinnamon can also be used.
The dough for these can be made ahead and refrigerated a day or so until ready to bake.
2 1/2 c. Holiday Cookie Mix
1 envelope spiced cider mix
1 t. cream of tartar
2 T. milk
1/4 c. sugar
1 t. apple pie spice or cinnamon
Measure cookie mix into a large mixing bowl. Add spiced cider mix and cream of tartar and mix well. Combine egg and milk and mix well. Add egg/milk mixture to dry ingredients. Mix until well blended. If the dough is too soft to roll into balls, refrigerate an hour or more. Combine sugar and apple pie spice or cinnamon. Mix well. Shape dough into 1-inch balls. Roll in sugar mixture. Place on a parchment-lined cookie sheet. Flatten with the bottom of a glass that has been dipped in the sugar mixture. Bake at 400 degrees 8 to 10 minutes. Remove from oven. Let stand one minute before removing from cookie sheet to rack to cool. Makes about 3 dozen.
