Sugar and Spice and Everything you ever wanted in a cupcake + a little more. I never thought I would hear the words "Mom, I love these more than your Snickerdoodle Muffins!"
If you are a Snickerdoodle fan, be sure to give these a try.

Disclaimer: I have always used recipes as a guide and use my instincts and experience to alter or omit ingredients as I cook. Therefore, it has always been a challenge when sharing recipes with others. I doubt I make dishes the same way twice. So, I advise you to use my recipes the same way.

How to Make Snickerdoodle Cookie Cupcakes~Robynne


  • 1CRUST
    Line standard muffin tins with paper liners.
    Mix cookie crumbs with melted butter and mix together thoroughly, either using a food processor or crush with mallet in large ziplock bag. The mixture should stick when you pinch the crumbs but still stay light a fluffy when broken apart. Place one tablespoon of cookie crumbs in each cupcake liner and press down, forming a compact crust. Bake for 4-6 minutes until the crust turns a slight golden brown.
  • 2CAKE
    Prepare cake mix as directed.
    Fill cupcakes liners 3/4 full with cake batter, on top of the crust.

    Bake as directed. Cool completely.
    Add all of the frosting ingredients to a large bowl and mix until fluffy. I recommend you adding the spices a little at a time, to achieve your desired flavor preference.
  • 4GARNISH (optional)
    I sprinkled some cinnamon sugar, fresh grated nutmeg, and topped with a piece of Snickerdoodle Cookie.
