Snickerdoodle Cookies Recipe History

History of this amazingly easy and delicious cookie is not very clear. Some say that this cookie had been named after the folklore hero Snickerdoodle, while some claim a deeper history of it that originates in German history between 17th and 18th century. The German history origin tale tells that the original recipe of the cookie was a much spicier one.
