MSC: Snickerdoodle Cupcakes and a CSN Stores Giveaway!

This month for our Martha Stewart's Cupcakes Club, Katie from Katiecakes chose the Snickerdoodle Cupcakes on page 138 of the Martha Stewart Cupcakes book.  I have been looking forward to making these cupcakes because I LOVE the Martha Stewart Snickerdoodle Cookies recipe found in her Cookies book.

One thing I really liked about these cupcakes is that you can make them with ingredients you probably have already in your pantry.  I halved the recipe, and ended up with 11 cupcakes.  I also baked them for less time than the book stated, about 16 minutes. 


I decided to use my "go-to" buttercream frosting recipe, simply because me and boiled frostings don't get along very well.  I thought these turned out wonderfully. They had an amazing cinnamon flavor, and went perfectly with a glass of milk. I will definitely be making these again.


And now for the giveaway!  CSNstores.com would like to give one of my readers a $35 gift certificate to any of their 200+ stores.

CSNstores.com is a baker's paradise.  There are so many kitchen items to choose from.  If you win, you may have a hard time deciding what to choose!  Here is how to enter, there are many different chances for you to win:

1. Leave me a comment on this blog letting me know what you would spend your $35 from CSNstores.com.

2. Follow my blog and leave me a comment letting me know that you now follow me.

3. Follow me on Twitter then leave me a comment with your user name.

4. Follow CSNstores on Twitter then leave me a comment with your user name.

So there are four different ways to enter.  Entries for the giveaway will be accepted through Thursday, October 21st at Midnight (CST).  Good luck!
