Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Grease cookie sheets.
  2. In a large bowl, cream together the butter or margarine and brown sugar until smooth. Mix in 1 teaspoon of cinnamon, baking powder, egg, and vanilla. Stir in flour by hand using a wooden spoon, as the dough will be stiff.
  3. Roll out tablespoon sized pieces of dough into 6 inch long ropes. Curl up one end slightly to make the head, then curl the rest of the rope towards the head in a spiral shape to make the snail shell. Place cookies 2 inches apart on the prepared cookie sheets. Brush cookies with egg white. Mix together the remaining cinnamon and superfine sugar in a small cup. Sprinkle this over the snails. Use chocolate chips to make eyes on the heads.
  4. Bake cookies for 8 minutes in the preheated oven, or until the bottoms are lightly browned. Let cool on the baking sheet for about 5 minutes before removing to wire racks to cool completely.

I loved this recipe! I made sure to follow this recipe as closely as possible. In order to shape them better i did have to use a little bit more flour. What else... after baking the first few, i realized how important it is to not get any of the egg on the cookie sheet. I'm going to make them again next week in the size recommended (i made this batch of cookies with more than a tbsp of cookie dough per cookie because i was in somewhat of a hurry). Anyways, thanks for the recipe.

Scaled to half. Real mushy, even after adding more flour. Also, this seems like a cookie recipe rather than the traditional "snails" I was hoping for.
