Mini Snickerdoodle Croissant Cookie

Mini Snickerdoodle Croissant Cookie is simple to make, but looks and tastes like it came from a french bakery.

Mini Snickerdoodle Croissant with a Dark Side

If you follow me here you know my Mother n Law is Sicilian and she can cook and she can bake.  I am still trying to get her cannoli recipe from her. I learned quickly once I was married that my husband appreciates a good meal and a great treat and he has very high standards of both.  He is not afraid to tell me if he doesn’t like something and I have had to learn to take the good with the bad when it comes to his critique of my cooking.

What I can tell you is that he LIKES these cookies, really likes them.  I have to hide them if I want to give away a few to friends, or gasp enjoy a few for myself.

I hope you try these little darlings because I am sure you and your lovelies will enjoy them.

  1. Amy, I am loving your blog! I just need to be home more to try everything. I really want to make these fancy snickerdoodle croissants. Dumb question… Where do you get the Dutch processed chocolate? I have never looked for it, so I don’t know if it’s easy to find or not. Thought I would save myself a little time and come right to the source to find out. Hope I can make them during the holidays.

    1. Hey Lady, hope you have a safe trip. I get my Dutch processed cocoa in the baking isle and I prefer Ghiradelli! Pretty much anything Ghiradelli makes me happy! 🙂
