Two kinds of cookies: Snickerdoodle & Lemon Poppy Seed

It’s Hanukkah and, all over the world, Jewish homes smell like freshly fried Sufganiyot.

It’s almost Christmas, and all over the US, American homes smell like cinnamony cookies.

It’s Christmakkah in our home and this year, we are planning to shake things up. Sufganiyot on Christmas and cookies on Hanukkah! Breaking traditions to make space for the new ones!

Today, I am sharing with you two kinds of cookie recipes: Snickerdoodle and Lemon Poppy Seed.




  1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees and line a large baking sheet with parchment paper.  Position your oven rack in the center of the oven.
  2. Combine all ingredients in a food processor until combined and the dough is formed. Or mix all ingredients by hand in a large bowl.
  3. Divide dough into 6-8 balls. Place on the baking sheet. Flatten each ball with your hand or parchment paper.
  4. Bake in the preheated oven for 15 minutes or until cookies are set and browning.  Allow cookies to cool on baking sheet 5-7 min before carefully transferring to wire racks to cool completely.
