Snickerdoodles

February 9, 2015

 

How could I not make Snickerdoodles after “The Way the Cookie Crumbles“?

As well as the majorities’ favorite, this is the perfect winter cookie, and couldn’t be easier to make.

Hopefully you enjoy my simple take on the Snickerdoodle.

Just keep in mind that the longer you bake the Snickerdoodles the more crispy/crunchy they’ll become.
