Golden Milk Snickerdoodles

Golden Milk is a traditional Indian drink made with warmed milk and various spices. A wonderfully healthy and healing drink. Turmeric is the core spice in Golden Milk and is the reason for that brilliant color and bringing with it a bounty of healing properties. Cinnamon, cardamom, black peppercorns, and ginger are often added to this delicious beverage. These snickerdoodle cookies may not be necessarily healing and healthy, but they are very reminiscent of Golden Milk. I just adore the rich golden color of these cookies. May your life be as rich and flavorful as these sweet treats!
