Every year, the day after Thanksgiving, Dottie would ask me if was time to start baking Snickerdoodles yet. I would try to put off pulling out my time tested recipe for as long as I could because it was time consuming.
This year, to save time, I was challenged to try taking the Quick Betty Crocker Cookies route. The result?
The easy way to make delicious pecan snickerdoodles
I picked up my Betty Crocker Cookies mix from the baking aisle at Walmart,
along with the ingredients required to make the cookie dough, as per the instructions on the packet.
Now follow the instructions on the pack to make the dough and instead of baking them immediately pop the dough into your refrigerator overnight. (I promise, the cookies taste so good this way!)
Make sure those cookie balls are placed about 2 inches apart from each other as they will flatten as they bake in the oven.
I baked my batch of Pecan Snickerdoodles for 10 minutes so they were slightly crispy but chewy. So if you would prefer crispy Pecan Snickerdoodles, leave them in for an additional minute or two.
Once you take the tray out of the oven, leave the cookies on the tray, to cool down and harden, for about 5 minutes. (I know, it’s so hard to grab one of the tray as soon as it comes out of the oven but you have to muster up all the will power needed to wait.)
I would recommend making two batches because these will be polished off in no time!
Share this delicious secret with friends and family. It will make holiday baking less stressful.
