Happy December, Friends! 😀  We’re having an unusually warm start to December, which I’m stoked about because I’m not a fan of our typically arctic temps here in the Twin Cities once winter decides to waltz in. However, the frosty air does have a few redeeming qualities in my joy book: fuzzy slippers, scented candles, and cookies.

Seeing that cookies and frosting are both superstars during the holidays, we’ve taken it upon ourselves to combine the two into one irresistible treat. Of course, cookies. It’s officially cookie baking season and we’re starting off with a cheerful bang.

Introducing Chewy Snickerdoodle Sandwich Cookies. 🎉 These snickerdoodle sandwich cookies taste like you spent time on them, but these cookies are actually surprisingly easy. That makes these snickerdoodles a prime candidate for all the cookie exchanges, dessert tables, and holiday potlucks coming right up.

These snickerdoodle sandwich cookies are chewy – not cakey – and ideal for hugging some frosting.

We added cinnamon into the cookie dough for extra flavor, in addition to the cinna-sugar coating snickerdoodles are famous for. I have my Middle Little to thank for that idea. He suggested it, we went for it, and we’re forever keeping it.

Two toothsome snickerdoodle cookies, filled with velvety vanilla frosting = holiday joy in every single bite.

For the Coating:


  • In the bowl of a stand mixer, add butter, both sugars, and mix until light and fluffy. Add eggs and vanilla extract. Mix until fully combined.
  • In a separate bowl, add flour, cream of tartar, baking soda, and salt. Whisk together dry ingredients well.
  • Fold dry ingredients together with the wet ingredients, until fully incorporated. Cover cookie dough tightly, and chill for at least 30 minutes or until dough is cold.
  • Meanwhile, mix the 4 TB sugar and 2-3 tsp cinnamon in a small bowl, whisk together, and set aside.
  • Preheat oven to 350F. Line baking sheets with parchment paper.
  • Form 1-inch balls of cookie dough, roll the balls in cinnamon-sugar coating, and place 2 inches apart on parchment-lined baking sheets.
  • Bake about 8 minutes or just until bottoms of cookies are golden brown. Sprinkle tops of hot cookies with a bit more cinnamon sugar. Let cool on baking sheet for about 5 minutes. Transfer to cool completely on wire rack.
  • Stir frosting in tub until smooth and silky. Spread desired amount of frosting onto the flat side of one cookie. Top with another cookie to create sandwiches. Repeat with remaining cookies.

    Those look amazing. We use a lot of the Wholesome products but I didn’t know they had frosting. Game changer when you only need a little and not in the mood to make your own.

    So I’m on the Biggest Loser Competition at work and I think I may have stared a little too long at the photos of your cookies.I definitely know I shed a tear when you said you added my favorite ,cinnamon. It looks really easy to make. Might be the first thing I do on Dec 16 when the competition ends.

    I love Wholesome food and baking using organic ingredients is one of my pastime. I try to make use of products that don’t contain artificial ingredients and they’re gluten-free so we’re sure that the baked goodies are okay for our diet.

    • Elizabeth O

    This Chewy Snickerdoodle Sandwich Cookies are really tasty and tempting. I think this is perfect cookies for my friend’s baby shower. I will definitely share to make this.

    Mouthwatering delicacies. Hard to control taste buds. But with the recipe at hand this can be done by me.

    • Preethika GN

    I have a huge weakness for cookies and cream and especially the home made ones. This looks absolutely yummy!

    • Barbara C. Hardison

    and 1 12.5 oz tub of what?

      • chewoutloud

      Hi, Barbara, I wonder if somehow you’re unable to view the links that are in the recipe. It should appear as 1 (12.5oz) tub Wholesome Organic Vanilla Frosting and 4 TB Wholesome Organic Cane Sugar.

      • KidBaker

      also, I can’t see the sugars, all I see is
      1/2 cup
      1/2 cup

    • Daria Gora

      • chewoutloud

    • Kristiana Wajnblom

    Ok I’m drooling. I’m definitely saving this recipe to make for my upcoming Christmas party!! Although I’ll have to make them gluten free, I know they’ll still be delicious. I LOVE snickerdoodle everything.
