Another recommendation by Stuart (@cakeyboi), Lisa's blog has the most fabulous name and I fell in love with it the moment I started reading her posts. She also has a mini UK bakery tour list that I'm definitely going to be using the next time I'm lucky enough to travel across the pond (our trip to London seems like a lifetime ago!)

Although I make these cookies any time of the year, because they are delicious! I tend to think of them more once the weather starts to get a little bit cooler. They are perfect for the holiday season as they have warm spices that just remind me of winter and Christmas.

If you have never tried a Snickerdoodle I encourage you to try them! They are easy to make and are so delicious! Enjoy! ~ Lisa


250g plain flour
½ tsp ground nutmeg
¾ tsp baking powder
½ tsp salt
125g butter, room temperature
100g plus 2 tbsp caster sugar
1 large egg
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 tbsp cinnamon

Combine flour, nutmeg, baking powder and salt. In a separate bowl cream the butter with 100g sugar until fluffy and pale in color. Beat in egg and vanilla. Fold into the dry mixture.

Mix the remaining sugar and cinnamon together in a large bowl. Roll the dough into walnut sized balls. 
Roll the dough balls in the sugar and cinnamon
