Directions

Preheat oven to  350° F (180° C). Place flour,  2 tsp (10 mL) cinnamon, baking powder, ginger and nutmeg in a bowl; stir until well combined. Whisk together eggs, oil, vanilla and 1 cup (250 mL) of the sugar in another bowl. Stir dry ingredients into wet ingredients to form soft dough. In a shallow bowl or pie plate, combine remaining sugar and cinnamon. Roll spoonfuls about 1 tbsp (15 mL) of dough into a 5 inch (12.5 cm) pencil shape on a flour-dusted surface. Roll dough in cinnamon sugar, then roll up in a spiral shape to form a snail leaving about a 1 1/2-inch (4 cm ) straight section for the neck and head. Place on parchment-lined baking sheets, at least 1 1/2-inch (4 cm) apart. Bake one sheet at a time about 12 to 14 minutes.
