Delicious Snickerdoodles

Snickerdoodles are one of my favorite types of cookies. They are coated in a cinnamon sugar mixture, making them different from standard sugar cookies. They generally look different than sugar cookies too because they begin to crack while they bake.

This is the recipe my mother used when I was young and I have never found a snickerdoodle recipe that tops the flavor this recipe creates.

If you want a recipe for mouthwatering snickerdoodle cookies, then this is the one for you!

      Snickerdoodles are cookies. I think I will add that information above, because they are not as widely known as others (such as chocolate chip or oatmeal raisin).

      As far as how you eat it, they are excellent straight from the oven, but you won't be able to eat four dozen cookies that quickly (just a guess), so most of them are eaten at room temperature. They go great with coffee and with milk.
