Snow Day Snickerdoodles

Speculoos snickerdoodles

When we were pummeled with nearly a foot of the white stuff two weeks ago, it seemed like a good time to whip up a few batches of my favorite cookies: chewy, cinnamon-laced snickerdoodles. I followed this recipe from Smitten Kitchen and loaded the batter up with two heaping spoonfuls of Trader Joe's addictive speculoos spread because, well, you really can't go wrong by adding some cookie butter.

With another snowstorm set to hit the East Coast, don't be surprised to find my stand mixer whirring away this weekend. I have my eye on a few of the sweet treats featured in the Cooking Channel galleries I recently threw together, including Kelsey Nixon's s'mores pudding pie and Bobby Deen's coconut tiramisu.
