Snickerdoodle Cookie Dough Frosting

Remember on this Peanut Butter Cookie Dough Frosting last week that I told you I had a few more cookie dough frosting recipes to share with you? Well, today I have one of them to share with you :)

Snickerdoodles… they happen to be one of my FAVORITE cookies! What is not to love about cinnamon-sugar goodness with a unique flavor from cream of tartar?!

Truth be told, I can’t help but pop a few snickerdoodle cookie dough balls in my mouth… shh!

    I just posted snickerdoodles this week and it was amazing how many people said it was their fave cookie -I would have guessed choc chip, PB, etc. And they're you're fave, too...I would have guessed you for chocolate something! :) This frosting I could demolish with a spoon - no cupcake needed! Ha! pinned :)

    I've never heard of dream whip before. What is it and where in the store would I find it? Because this sounds divine!

    1. Chef in Training

      Its found in the baking aisle next to the marshmallows, jello and pie crusts. It comes in a box, with separate packages inside. You can omit it though if you want, I just like to add it for the nice texture it brings :)

    What a perfect frosting for fall baking; love that you included the cream of tartar for authenticity! Will definitely be trying on my spice cookies:)
