Snickerdoodle Cookies

Snickerdoodle Cookies

Snickerdoodles are such a classic cookie.  They are a perfect dessert to bring to a party, gathering, or simply to share with your friends.  I often ask my team, “if I were to bring a treat to the gym today, what should I make?” These, along with brownies, always seem to be the most popular request.  Whenever I bring them, they are gone in a jiffy!

Soft and sweet on the inside, cinnamon-y on the outside, and overall delicious, this is my go-to snickerdoodle recipe.  Enjoy!
