Snickerdoodle Cupcakes

Hungry for a cupcake, but looking for something a little different than the ordinary chocolate or vanilla cupcake? Well, this Snickerdoodle Cupcake is sure to do the trick! My girls wanted some cupcakes, I, however, wanted to be a bit more adventurous in my baking. I found this recipe from Martha Stewart and let me tell you ... the cupcakes were outstanding!

I wasn't sure if I'd be able to make the icing fancy, but Martha gives clear, easy directions on how to do it and really, it couldn't have been any simpler. If you don't have a pastry bag, you can use a ziplock bag. Cut the corner off the bag and slip your large plain icing tip through the hole. Fill the bag 3/4 full of icing, get the air out of the bag and roll the top down tight. Then, just squeeze to create the little dome and pull up to make the little peak. Easy, peasy.

Just dust your cinnamon sugar on top and they're done!

The cupcakes were actually even better than I thought they would be. The recipe makes a lot, which is nice. We had plenty to satisfy everyone here at home and we even had some to share. The cake was moist and flavorful and the icing was the perfect addition. It's light - a mix between a meringue and a marshmallow, a little crisp on the outside and fluffy on the inside. For a brief minute, I thought about using a traditional frosting, but I am so happy I did not. After tasting them, I don't feel that any other type frosting would compliment the cupcake quite as well. 

I've included the recipe below as well as a link to download it as a jpeg to your computer here. You can then print it out on cardstock, if you choose, and store it with your other favorite dessert recipes.
