This is the recipe that started me on salt with my desserts.
This snickerdoodle recipe is melt in your mouth, cinnamon and sugar heaven. The snickerdoodle itself is firm enough to hold, but once you bite into it, the soft inside just melts in your mouth.
And now it is sprinkled with sea salt.
(It is not sprinkled with sprinkles however. I know it is totally not fair to put sprinkles in a photo of a sprinkle-less cookie. It just isn’t. However, my lighting was horrible, I was running out of time, and I had no good ideas for props. None. So sprinkles saved the day! But they aren’t in the cookies. #foodbloggerproblems)
Have you ever found a product that you just fell in love with instantly? I’ve had that moment several times this week. But after telling Mom how much I liked this mini wheat crunch cereal, she kind of laughed and told me they were discontinuing it. Oh, ok. I guess that happens. But then it happened again. And then again! I was complaining to Mom everything I like no one else does. She told me maybe that says something about my taste.
Burn. (It was really funny actually)
Thank goodness salt is not one of those products. Take away my cereal, my granola bars, my pasta sauce, but leave me my salt, okay?
