Snickerdoodle Cookie in a Cup (2024)

by Melissa 20 Comments

Snickerdoodle Cookie in a Cup is the latest variation in my cookie in a cup recipes. I have to admit, it might just be my favorite! The buttery, warm cinnamon flavors are just perfect together!

I’m so excited to share this Snickerdoodle Cookie in a Cup recipe. I have had a few requests for this variation and I think you guys are going to love it!

Just follow the steps outlined in the recipe below to create this lovely, cinnamon-y dough, and microwave for about 50 seconds. Just like an oven baked cookie, the order the ingredients are mixed in is important. Cooking time will vary depending on the strength of your microwave.

Take care when removing from the microwave, as the cup and cookie will be very hot. It will also be soft initially, just like an oven baked cookie, and will firm up and become chewier as it cools.

Don’t be afraid to sprinkle on the cinnamon generously!

    I tried this with stevia and honey instead of granulated sugar (they were all that I had). It turned out tasting really good, although the texture was not quite cookie-ish. Still really tasty though. I’m sure if I’d used real sugar it’d be even better.

    I love all of your microwave recipes, but this just might be my favourite! I’m a sucker for cinnamon, I think. It’s always a struggle trying to resist the urge to just dive in with my fork before it cools to the perfect texture!

    I’ve been making your chocolate chip cookie in a cup for almost a year now, so when I typed “in a cup” tonight on Pinterest and saw this from you, it was a no brainer to try it.

    This was great! Soft, moist, SUPER EASY! I’m tired of making a whole batch of cookies just to eat one or two and giving the rest away. This was perfect! So good, in fact, that my husband even liked it!
