Looking for a delicious snickerdoodle cookie recipe that is easy to make? These are soft, delicious, and can be whipped up in no time.
I love baking cookies. They were the first thing I learned to make and I have made a lot of them. Around Christmas, I end up making a lot of cookies. It’s usually what I offer to bring to gatherings.
Normally I make chocolate chip cookies or sugar cookies but it’s fun to mix it up. Snickerdoodles are a cookie I really like but rarely seem to eat.
A few years ago when trying to decide what cookies I wanted to take to the local recycling coalition December meeting I decided to try to make some snickerdoodles because I never had. They were delicious!
I like my chocolate chip cookies slightly crunchy on the outside but for me, snickerdoodles must be soft and these are. They scream holidays to me so that’s the main time I make them.
I hadn’t made them recently and decided I should and that I needed to share them. I’m so glad I did because I forgot how much I enjoy them.
