Carol, a reader and real-life recipe user, wrote in about my Oatmeal Snickerdoodles and to suggest a recipe variation:
These are delicious and addicting! I made them the other night, and my husband and I can't stop eating them. Good thing it's "only" a two dozen batch... I love the texture - great combination of cakey/soft/chewy. The cookie itself isn't too sweet, making the cinnamon-sugar coating a perfect touch. I used 3/4 t. baking soda, no cream of tartar. My first pan could have used more coating, so I did extra rolling for the second pan. Still had a lot of the cinnamon-sugar left over. I would roll them even more next time, and get a really good coating on them. I love playing with chai spices in baked goods, so next time I make these (and oh, there will be a next time) I may try using a chai spice mixture in place of the cinnamon, just for fun. Thanks for another wonderful recipe, Greg!
Thanks, Carol! So glad you liked these. The chai spice sounds like an excellent idea. I've thought about doing a chai cookie (codename: "Chai Oh My") for a while. You've inspired me to give it a go soon.
