The past month has been nuts…For starters, we welcomed our baby boy Miki (John Miguel) into the world on the 19th of November. His “due” date was actually the 26th, and I was doing all I could to prepare for finals before he would arrive (more on that later). It’s been a lot trying to adjust to having 2 under 2, as well as 2 older kiddos while trying to finish off my semester strong. But I’m happy to say all my final grades ended up being great and I am officially done with the Fall 20 semester! I’ve got one more come spring and I am *that* much closer to becoming a PA (but more on that later too). Today’s post isn’t about my professional career path or babies, though those are soon to come. Instead, today’s post is about snickerdoodles. After doing all the studying my sleep deprived brain could handle this weekend, I decided to take get in the kitchen and focus on some Christmas baking. The result of this was these buttery snickerdoodles. As always, while I used monk fruit as my sweetener, they can easily be made with coconut and maple sugar. Overall, these cookies are simple, delicious, and a perfect way to celebrate the Christmas season despite everything going on in the world around us.
