Snickerdoodle Cupcakes


I made the most AMAZING cupcakes today!! I could eat the cake part by itself without frosting. Today we are celebrating my friend's birthday. It's a Mexican themed potluck...I kept wondering what I should bring. I thought about making Churros but I ruled that out because it would be too much work (not saying you aren't worth the work Marlene!!) So then I thought well I could make snickerdoodles since they have the same flavor profile and then I thought about cupcakes and making a snickerdoodle cupcake. I googled recipes and combined a couple together. I seriously can't believe how yummy these turned out!!

Cream together butter, sugars, sour cream, vanilla, eggs and spices. Add Baking Powder and flour and mix until combined

Pour batter in cupcake papers and bake for 22 minutes at 350 degrees. Set cupcakes on a paper towel to cool

Frost with Cream Cheese Frosting and sprinkle with cinnamon & sugar
