I’m taking a little break this week from the computer, so I can create the cupcakes, but I do have a yummy cupcake for you today…

Snickerdoodle Cupcakes with Snickerdoodle Cookies!

With cinnamon flavor cake and fluffy frosting and a sprinkle of Snickerdoodle Cookies, these are a perfect Fall treat or even an after-school snack. I started with Amy’s recipe, changed it up a bit and added my own easy version of frosting. I used my favorite recipe for Snickerdoodle Cookies, they are soft and have the perfect amount of cinnamon.
