Molasses Vanilla Bean Snickerdoodle Cookies

What you need: 

Topping:
1/3 cup sugar
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon Cookies:
1 2/3 cups +1/2 cup unbleached all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 cup sugar or vanilla sugar
1/2 cup canola oil
1/4 cup molasses
3 tablespoons + 1 teaspoon nondairy milk
1/2 vanilla bean pod, seeds scraped or 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract

What you do: 

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Line cookie sheets with parchment paper. On a large plate, preferably with high sides or a rim around the edges, mix the topping together (sugar and cinnamon) and set aside.
2. In a medium to large bowl, combine all the flour, baking soda, and salt. Whisk to get everything incorporated nicely. In a separate bowl, whisk together the sugar and oil until thoroughly mixed.
3. Stir in molasses, vanilla bean seeds or vanilla extract and nondairy milk. Mix these ingredients together, then slowly sift in the dry ingredients. Use your hands to get a dough to form. Avoid overworking the dough.
4. Take small portions of the dough and roll into walnut sized balls. You can make them bigger, if you so choose, but this size usually yields about 20 cookies. Gently press cookie between your palms and fingers to form little disks/patties. Carefully pat cookie disks into cinnamon sugar topping mix.
5. Place on prepared cookie sheets, sugar side up and bake for 10 to 12 minutes or until the edges turn a faint golden brown. For a softer cookie with a chewy edge, bake for about 10 minutes. Allow a few minutes for cookies to cool before removing from sheet pan, then transfer to wire cooling rack and allow to completely cool.
Don't peek while the cookies are baking. You run the risk of letting the heat out the oven which makes for a sad cookie.
Source of recipe: Cookie science madness! This recipe was inspired by lack of ingredients to make my Lemon Vanilla Blueberry Cookies (http://vegweb.com/index.php?topic=33025.0 ). I modified that recipe and came up with this delicious accident.

Super easy cookies to make and they came out great!  I made them into small cookies so they are crisp, but if you make them larger they would definitely be chewier.  I rolled and flattened a few out at a time and then put them in the saucer with the sugar mixture and swirled them around in that.  If you do it that way, you don't have to spend so much time patting them into the sugar one at a time.  My husband loves them, my neighbor loves them, and I'm taking them to a christening so I'm sure everyone there will love them.  Thanks!

These are delicious!
I followed the recipe exactly and put them in the oven for 11 minutes.
Just a warning though: They are SUPER sweet, so enjoy in small quantities.
Thanks for a great recipe!

These are awesome! I was a little curious when putting them in the oven because all the batter smelled like was molasses and molasses can be overpowering sometimes. The first pan just came out and is halfway gone after five minutes. These taste like chewy in the middle, crunchy on the edges caramels! So, so good. Thank you.  ;)b

These cookies were so good and so easy!! My coworkers say they are their favorite cookies I've made so far! 

The only problem I had was my dough was a little dry so I had to add some more oil to the mix.

Thanks for sharing!!

A little dry? I didn't encounter that, but usually a few drops of soy or almond milk can take care of that. I wouldn't suggest adding more oil simply because there's already so much of it. Glad you were able to remedy the problem. Enjoy!
