The Sweet Tooth Fairy

The only thing more fun than saying the word snickerdoodle is eating one!  These beloved cinnamon delights with an added twist of a delicious Hershey’s Kisses are a wonderful addition to your Christmas cookie platter. Whether you are making them for your family, or bringing them to an event, this unique recipe from the private kitchen of Megan Faulkner Brown, founder of The Sweet Tooth Fairy Gourmet Bake Shop, is sure to be a crowd pleaser!  


  • 1 cup unsalted butter, softened 

  • 1 1/2 cups granulated sugar

  • 2 large eggs, slightly beaten

  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract

  • 3 1/2 cups all-purpose flour

  • 1 - 3.4 oz box of instant vanilla pudding

  • 2 teaspoons cream of tarter

  • 1 teaspoon baking soda

  • 1/2 teaspoons salt

  • 2 cups cinnamon chips (optional)

  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar

  • 1 tablespoon ground cinnamon pinch of ground nutmeg

  • Hershey’s Kisses ®


  1. Preheat oven to a temperature of 350 degrees. 

  2. Line baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside. 

  3. In a large mixing bowl, add 1 cup unsalted butter, softened 

  4. Mix on medium speed until creamy and smooth—about 1 minute. 

  5. Add 1 1/2 cups granulated sugar

  6. Cream ingredients together on medium speed until light and fluffy--about 2 to 3 minutes. 

  7. Stop the mixer and scrape down the sides of the bowl with a spatula. 

  8. Add 2 large eggs, slightly beaten, 1 tablespoon vanilla extract

  9. Mix ingredients together on low speed until they are evenly mixed.

  10. Increase mixer speed to medium and mix until light and fluffy--about 2 - 3 minutes 

  11. In a separate medium bowl, add 3 1/2 cups all-purpose flour, 1 - 3.4 oz box of instant vanilla pudding, 2 teaspoons cream of tarter, 1 teaspoon baking soda, 1/2 teaspoons salt

  12. Whisk dry ingredients together until well combined and gradually pour into the wet mixture—adding a little bit at a time. 

  13. Mix on low speed until everything is completely blended together. 

  14. Stop the mixer and scrape down the sides of the bowl with a spatula. 

  15. Add 2 cups cinnamon chips (optional)

  16. Mix together on low speed until chips are well dispersed throughout the dough.

  17. Form the dough into balls either by using a cookie scoop or rolling them into a golf-ball sized portion. 

  18. In a shallow bowl, add 1/2 cup granulated sugar, 1 tablespoon ground cinnamon, pinch of ground nutmeg

  19. Mix together until well combined. 

  20. Roll each dough ball into the cinnamon-sugar mixture.

  21. Ideally, chill the dough balls for 30 minutes--if you have the time and/or patience to do so. If not, that is just fine.

  22. Place dough balls on prepared baking sheet--leaving space between the dough balls to allow for spreading.

  23. Bake the cookies for 10-12 minutes or until lightly browned and almost set.

  24. Remove cookies from the oven and immediately top with unwrapped Hershey's Kisses®. 

  25. Let Kisses set on top of the cookie for a couple of minutes before slightly pressing down the tips to create a little rim around the bottom. 

  26. Allow cookies to cool on the baking sheets for a few minutes before moving to a wire rack to cool completely. 

  27. Store cookies in an airtight container/bag at room temperature for a few days or in the freezer for a few weeks.
