SNICKERDOODLE LATTE RECIPE
Buttery and sweet, with a kick of cinnamon, this recipe takes all of the highlights of an autumn Snickerdoodle Cookie and transforms them into one of my favorite seasonal drinks to make! It’s the perfect taste of childhood nostalgia to fit in with the burning colors of the leaves outside and cozy afternoons spent with family by the fireplace.

To start this recipe off, I use a little mason jar to mix all of the ingredients. Making sure that it has an attachable lid will help with the process later.
To the jar, I’m adding a pat of butter and half a cup of milk. You can easily choose your preferred butter and/or milk substitute here to make the latte that’s best for your dietary needs!
I’m also adding a tablespoon of brown sugar and a teaspoon of cinnamon. That might sound like a lot of cinnamon, but I enjoy a good, strong spicy flavor. You can totally add less if you prefer!
Just a note, if you are using unsalted butter here you may want to add a pinch of salt to the jar as well, to really give it that baked goods or cookie flavor!
I am often asked how to create that frothy foam without having a fancy espresso machine milk wand, and the answer is simple: put the lid on the mason jar and shake until the mixture is thoroughly aerated, for about 30 to 60 seconds. This will give it that perfect foam texture.
The magic really happens when I remove the lid and put the jar in the microwave, heating it up for 15 seconds at a time until it reaches the latte temperature I want. This will melt the butter and bring all of the flavors together!
Usually my husband brews our coffee while I whip up the delicious, easy latte milk for our Saturday morning coffee dates on the couch. Here's my current favorite whole bean coffee. Once the coffee is brewed I’ll pour it into my favorite fall mug and add the milk mixture.
The last of the foam tops this drink beautifully to make the easiest latte you’ve ever made. It’s seriously like a fall cookie in a mug and it’s one of my favorite coffee recipes I’ve ever developed!
