  • 18 each miniature snickerdoodle cookies see recipe below
  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 3 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter softened
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 each eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 3/4 cup milk
  • 2 c Buttercream frosting see link in post for recipe


  • Preheat the oven to 350F. If using cupcake wrappers, fill cupcake trays with 18 liners.
  • Combine the flour, salt, baking powder and cinnamon in a medium bowl.
  • In a large mixer bowl, cream the butter and sugar at a medium speed until light and fluffy (about 2 minutes).
  • Add the eggs and vanilla to the mixer bowl one at a time until well combined.
  • Add 1/3 of the dry ingredients to the mixer bowl, then alternate with half the milk, repeating until all of the milk and dry ingredients are incorporated.
  • Spoon the batter in to the cupcake tray (I like to use an ice cream scoop) until each is 3/4 full.
  • Bake at 350F until cooked through and a toothpick comes out clean (about 15-20 minutes).
  • Remove the cupcakes from the trays and let cool before frosting.
  • Garnish with one miniature snickerdoodle before serving.
