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. No one is sure, but it’s believed that this cookie first became popular in German communities in New England or Pennsylvania.  The one thing I have discovered is that there are lots of different Snickerdoodle recipes that will deliver very different results.  All good. The following recipe is based on Mrs. Fields Snickerdoodles. The end product should be soft and, of course, delicious.
