Did you know that The Joy of Cooking claims that snickerdoodles are probably German in origin, and that the name is a corruption of the German word Schneckennudel. It is also possible that the name is simply a nonsense word with no particular meaning, originating from a New England tradition of whimsical cookie names.

Like snicker doodles, here are some other whimsical cookie names that are just fun to say.

Lady fingers. That name does not sound appetizing.

Thumb print cookies. Whose thumb are we talking about?

Tim Tams. Do these belong to Tiny Tim from A Christmas Carol?

Mud pie cookies. Perhaps these are cookies that Santa dropped in the dirt as he dashed out of sight?

Hermit cookies. Are these part of the crustacean family?

And talk about whimsical, who ever got rich eating a fortune cookie?

Sit back and enjoy Snicker Doodles by James & Leona with some warm apple cider and a few good friends. Reminisce about childhood cookies or try our Christmas Cookie Trivia.
