Apple Snickerdoodles

Snickerdoodles were my grandpa’s favorite cookie… one of mine too! The slightly crisp and chewy cookie with cinnamon spice flavor – yum! I’ve made Pumpkin Snickerdoodles before but wanted a new apple recipe and instantly thought of these! A great Fall treat for sure!

Recipe Notes

For gluten-free flour: I recommend using Bob's Red Mill Gluten-Free 1:1 All-purpose flour OR King Arthur Gluten-Free Flour blend.

To make this dairy-free, use your favorite butter substitute. You can also use palm shortening!
