Snickerdoodles remind me so much of my childhood, and have been one of my favorite cookies for as long as I can remember. The soft, chewy buttery cookie rolled in the cinnamon & sugar mixture that give it  that perfect dose of crunch…it’s enough to make my mouth water just thinking about them.  And the smell throughout the house when you make them?  Totally intoxicating.

I’ve tried several different Snickerdoodle recipes of the years, but this one is hands down the best, and my favorite.  I found this recipe on Food.com, and even though I rarely try a recipe that I don’t end up altering in some way, this one I didn’t.  I love them exactly the way they are!

They are so easy to put together, and the chilled dough and cookie sheet make a huge difference in how they turn out. They’re so soft, the perfect texture, and the taste is unbelievable.  They last about 5.2 seconds at my house–I literally cannot make them fast enough! I love wrapping them up and dropping them off to friends or neighbors as a thinking of you or thank you gift.
