Classic snickerdoodle cookies made egg free, with the perfect balance of crisp and fluffy textures!

Like most, I’m pretty baffled by the weather lately. Though, I’m not complaining at all. It’s just weird for it to be regularly in the 50s in New England this time of year. I’ve been checking my weather app daily to see what it’s going to be like for Christmas. It’s now saying 60 degrees. Seriously?! Clearly zero chance of a white Christmas here. I’m not sure if this means we’re being pranked by Mother Nature and things are going to turn ugly fast for January through March or if Farmer’s almanac was wrong and it’s going to be a super mild winter. Only time will tell… but so far, the weather has been peculiar.

Totally unrelated but what do you do when you have a craving for something specific? Do you immediately go out and get it or make it, or plan it for that day or week? Or do you eventually move on and forget about it? I’ve been craving nachos for probably a solid week and still haven’t had any. Of course, I haven’t had any of the proper ingredients in the house for the ones I really want to make. And, it doesn’t help when I keep seeing nachos popping up all over… Snapchat, Instagram etc. My weekend mission just might be to make nachos…if I remember to buy all of the proper ingredients.

Continuing with some egg free baking and testing, I turned one of my favorite seasonal cookies into an egg-free version! This means they’re perfect for anyone with an egg allergy or if you just happen to be out of eggs and don’t want to run to the store!

One of my favorite things about cookies, including these cookies, is that you can very easily make them soft or crispy depending on how long you bake them. Want softer cookies? Bake them for less time. Want them crispier? Keep them in longer. Everyone can have enjoy a perfect cookie, just how they like it!

These egg free snickerdoodle cookies have the perfect balance of crisp and fluffy textures. A crowd pleasing cookie and an absolute must make!

Don’t let the holiday season pass by without making a batch!
