Snickerdoodle Cookies

Snickerdoodle Cookies

I am a chocolate chip cookie kinda girl so I haven’t made a snickerdoodle for a long time.  A really long time.  It’s not that I don’t like snickerdoodles, it is just that I like chocolate a little more.

Ok, who are we kidding, I like it a lot more.

That’s not very fair for the snickerdoodle though is it?

So the other day it was super cold and snow here.  We were supposed to go downtown to look at the Christmas lights but it was just. so. cold.  So we made hot chocolate and decided to give snickerdoodles a fair chance instead.

This recipe is one that I found in my grandmas cookie recipes that I have, I have a lot of her recipes.  Some are handwritten by her and are my most cherished, others are written in my handwriting probably because I called her and asked her how to make a specific dish or treat.  I sure do miss those phone calls.

The snickerdoodle is a simple, delicious cookie.  They are buttery and chewy and have the perfect ratio of cinnamon and sugar.  If you want a cookie to go along with your hot cocoa, this is a fabulous choice.

We had a great family night despite our change of plans.  We invited some friends over, enjoyed these cookies and cocoa and had a lot of laughs.  That’s the fun thing about cookies, they are always fun to share.
