Here is what I think of snickerdoodles… I think they are the PERFECT cookie.  They are light, chewy, crispy and reminds me of mom.  They have a little sugar on them, a little cinnamon and lots of yum.  When I make these things I eat like 20 a day… okay maybe 10 a day!  I use to sneak them when I was younger and take them to school for breakfast.  They are like cinnamon toast.  Can you tell I like my snickerdoodles?

So I finally made some this last week, the batch makes a lot and I was getting tired by the end of the night rolling them all out.  But that’s okay because they are smaller cookies than some so you eat a lot and they are worth it!  This is the recipe I got from my mom and it’s the only one I have used and the only one I will ever use.  I am listing it exactly like my mom wrote it on the recipe card for me when I moved out of the house.



1 cup soft butter
1 ½ cup sugar

2 ¾ cups flour
