Author Notes

Every weekend I do my weekend shopping at one particular Whole Foods because they have these amazing creme stuffed snickerdoodles. Fluffy, soft, delicious creme filled snickerdoodles. I've been wanting to develop a recipe for them and this frosting contest presented the perfect opportunity: the universe wanted me to make and eat these cookies!

The snickerdoodle recipe is adapted from the classic cookie cookbook "Cookies" and the blog "How Sweet It Is," and the buttercream is a classic recipe from Martha Stewart with my own flavor additions. —TaraT

Please review your list and reference your steps. It's all wrong. There is no mention of the Cream of Tarter, Flour Baking Soda and you have cinnamon listed twice with no mention as to what to use it for the 2nd time. I kind of know what you meant because I make cookies all the time but this does not make sense.
