My crew pretty much love ALL cookies, but, Snickerdoodles are their top favorite. They are learning to make recipes like this one on their own. They make cookies frequently, and claim it’s to “practice” but really I think they just want more Snickerdoodles! These are delicious any time of the year, but especially great during the fall season. They’re sure to be a hit at any Fall festival, bake sale, Halloween Party, Thanksgiving Dinner, Christmas Cookie Swap, or Christmas Dinner.

Snickerdoodles bring back childhood memories. I used to make them with my mom, late in the evening. Always loved the name!
