Christmas is around the corner, which means it’s cookie exchange season! I think it’s a great concept, but I know it’s a hassle coming up with the perfect recipe, finding the time to actually bake the cookies, and worrying that everyone is going to make the same thing. So I’ve come up with a fast, easy, and fun recipe that I can pretty much guarantee no one else will have (unless they read Foodbeast too). Snickers and Cheez Doodles Snickerdoodles — it’s your basic Snickerdoodle stuffed with Snickers, rolled in Cheez Doodle dust and baked with love.

Snickers and Cheez Doodle Snickerdoodles

(makes appox. 20 cookies)

Ingredients

Directions

*This ratio of doodle to cinnamon sugar leaves your taste buds with a subtle cheese flavor. If you're looking to really let that doodle flavor shine (which I would fully support), I suggest decreasing the cinnamon sugar by half and increasing the doodles to 2 ounces. If you leave the recipe as is, you'll definitely still get the cheesiness, but it won’t be the star of the show. Regardless of which direction you ultimately go in, I think you’ll find it to be a cookie that s unique, tasty, and talked about at cookie exchanges for years to come.
