These Pan-Banging Snickerdoodles are a super fun twist on a classic cookie. These giant cookies are soft, chewy, crispy with beautiful rippled edges. Insanely delicious and hard to stop at just one (even though they’re giant)!
It’s 11 days into the new year and I haven’t posted a cookie recipe ye (gasp!), so today I’m sharing these Pan Banging Snickerdoodles that are going to rock your world if you love snickerdoodles. If you don’t love snickerdoodles, then I’m really sorry and I also don’t know if we can still be friends because I love snickerdoodles!
Do I love them more than chocolate chip cookies?
Probably not, but I would never turn away a good snickerdoodle (and yes, it has to be good because I have tasted some not so good ones before).
These Pan Banging Snickerdoodles are buttery, chewy, crispy and absolutely delicious! Oh and they’re also giant in case you couldn’t tell.
If you’ve made these Pan Banging Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies, these snickerdoodles are baked with the same technique. Let me explain in case you’re wondering. . .
WHAT ARE PAN-BANGING COOKIES?
Pan-banging cookies are made by simply raising the pan of cookies while they’re in the oven baking, and then letting the pan fall against the oven rack. You repeat this pan-banging technique several times, the first time being after they’ve baked about 8 minutes and then about every 2 minutes until they’re done.
The dropping/banging of the pan causes the warm, soft cookie dough to spread out flat and wide, into giant circles. creating large cookies with beautiful crinkly ripples at the edges. FYI, I swear the crinkly ripples magically make cookies even better.
This recipe comes from the book 100 Cookies by Sara Kieffer which I happily bought myself for Christmas. There are several pan banging cookie recipes in there and I cannot wait to try them all.
JUST SIMPLE INGREDIENTS NEEDED FOR THESE COOKIES:
- All-purpose flour
- Baking soda
- Kosher salt
- Cream of tartar
- Freshly grated nutmeg
I always use freshly grated nutmeg, so I always have it on hand, but if you don’t have any you can use ground nutmeg in its place. However, if you ask me, freshly grated is worlds better than the ground nutmeg you buy in the jar.
You guys, these cookies are so good. I wish you had one to eat right now.
A cold glass of milk and one of these Pan Banging Snickerdoodles is the perfect way to start your Monday. And while you’re at it, if you haven’t made the pan banging oatmeal chocolate chip cookies, then you might as well make those while you’re at it.Print
