Snickerdoodle Bites

These were the third type of “cookie” I made for my friend’s wedding. Snickerdoodle bars – but with a spin since I cut them with a round cookie cutter, I called them bites.

I used the recipe from Miss in the Kitchen. These are great because they take less time than even a snickerdoodle cookie (which I don’t know about you, but I always have every ingredient in my kitchen for a snickerdoodle) because you just cut the bars after you’re done. You don’t even need to roll each ball for a cookie. These were fun because I used a cookie cutter, and I thought it made them look really cute. Plus, since there’s a whole table of just wedding cookies, these bite-sized treats were easy to sample.

Here’s the recipe:

Snickerdoodle Bites

Yield:  9×11 inch pan



  • 1/2 cup butter, softened to room temperature
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda


  • 2 Tbsp granulated sugar
  • 1 tsp cinnamon


  1. Preheat oven to 350 F.
  2. In a large mixer bowl beat butter and sugar together until fluffy.  Add egg and vanilla and continue to beat until combined.  Add flour and baking soda and combine.
  3. Pour into a greased 9 x 11 inch baking dish, spreading into an even layer.  
  4. Combine 2 tablespoons sugar with cinnamon and sprinkle over dough.
  5. Bake for 20-25 minutes or until a wooden pick inserted comes out clean.
  6. Cool slightly before cutting into bars.

So after the bars cooled I used these great round cutters my fiance found at a baking store. There are all sorts of sizes, so I just chose one. 

Then I just cut out as many circles as I could. 

This is great for a party since there are so many bites that come out of one recipe.

Yum, look at that topping. It’s good…
