Doesn't it sound so adorable? Like, if i have a poodle id name him/ her snickerdoodle :) or maybe even Ro. After I came across this name, I've been calling him snickerdoodle, and have managed to irritate him to an extent.
I came across this cookie recipe on the joy of baking website and couldn't wait to try it. I finally did so a couple of days back when a friend was visiting for tea and it was over in a matter of minutes. Its incredibly easy and yummy.

I have halved the measurements because i didn't want 6 dozen doodles:)
I also made a slight change to the last bit of rolling it in cinnamon and sugar since we are not huge fans of cinnamon in general.

All purpose flour- 180gms
Baking powder- 1 tsp
Unsalted butter-1/2 cup
Granulated white sugar- 150gms
Egg- 1
Vanilla extract- 1/2 tsp
Salt- 1/4 tsp
Cinnamon powder- to dust

In a bowl whisk together the flour, baking pwd and salt.
In another larger bowl, using a hand beater, whisk together the butter and sugar till light and fluffy.
Add the egg and whisk again to combine well.
Pour the vanilla extract and the flour mixture and beat well till you have smooth dough.
Preheat oven to 190C
Place a baking sheet on a tray and roll the dough into small balls and place them a few cms apart
Bake for about 8 to 10 minutes, or till they are golden brown around the edges.
Remove and cool on a wire rack. Dust with cinnamon powder before serving
Once cool, store in an air tight container.
Notes: The original recipe asks you to roll the dough balls in a cinnamon and sugar mix and then bake it. I decided to powder the baked doodle instead.
My dough was soft and so it was difficult to roll it into balls. So i refrigerated it for about 2 hours and still it was a wee bit difficult.
Make sure you leave enough space between the dough balls on the tray, because my first batch, some of them just joined together.
If you need it crisp, keep them a little longer in the oven, but doodles are supposed to be chewy and soft i guess.
