SnickerdoodlesSnickerdoodles cropped


While cookies sprinkled with sugar and cinnamon may have been around for a few thousand years, the name Snickerdoodles has been in print for just over a hundred years.

The following recipe is based on Mrs. Fields Snickerdoodles. The end product should be soft and, of course, delicious.
