Snickerdoodles without cream of tartar

These Snickerdoodles without cream of tartar promise to still hit the sweet spot. Perfect with your next cup of tea.

Snickerdoodles are an old-fashioned and delicious type of American cookie. Dusted in cinnamon sugar, they’re slightly chewy, not too sweet and golden in colour. We’ve given the traditional recipe an added twist, substituing the cream of tartar for some decadent dark chocolate instead. Any chocolate lovers dream – this adds a lovely richness to the cookie which melt in your mouth with each bite. Our recipe will give you 15 in a easy and speedy 25 minutes. Enjoy slightly warm with a hot drink of your choice.

The cookies will spread a little on cooking, so leave some space between them on the baking tray.
