The Mysterious Origins of the Snickerdoodle

Did you know that October is National Cookie Month? That’s right! You have a full month to celebrate one the world’s most popular desserts. Who doesn’t love a good cookie? After all, they come in all sorts of flavors, shapes, and sizes. Take the snickerdoodle, for instance. The exact origin of this cinnamon-and-sugar-covered cookie is unknown, and, not surprisingly, there are many cookies with mysterious origins. Many recipes were passed down from home bakers, the unsung inventors of today’s classics. The name “snickerdoodle” suggests it may have come from Germany or was crafted by a German baker in the United States. Interestingly enough, the cinnamon-and-sugar cookie is hard to find outside of the U.S. and Canada. The entry for snickerdoodle in the “Joy of Cooking” cookbook references a German pastry called the Schnecknudel, or “snail noodle.” It’s possible the name snickerdoodle was derived

from the word Schnecknudel ; however, they are very different baked goods.

The Schnecknudel gets its name from its appearance — a snail shell. Not unlike a traditional cinnamon roll, the Schnecknudel is a sweet yeast dough roll. It’s certainly not a cookie. According to “The Food Lover’s Companion,” a Barron’s publication, the word “snickerdoodle” may stem from New England bakers who love to name their culinary creations with words that sound whimsical. Consider other New England treats such as jolly boys (a sweet, doughy fried bread) and tangle breeches (a sweet, flaky fried bread). No matter where the name comes from, one thing is for sure. You can’t beat the buttery, cinnamony, sugary delight that is the snickerdoodle!
