"I like to double the cinnamon. We make these cookies all the time."

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Dec. 28, 2014

"I have made these as written for several years, and they turn out as slightly puffy round cookies that are absolutely delicious. I have tried several other snickerdoodle recipes, and this is definitely my family's favorite. It's now my go-to recipe for snickerdoodles. I think my family would mutiny if I tried to use a different recipe."

"Here's a trick for cookies staying soft. Put them in an air tight container and add a couple pieces of bread. The cookies will stay soft. If your cookies are hard already do the same thing and they will soften up again."

MY REVIEW

"I've eaten and made a lot of snickerdoodles and these were, by far, the most disappointing snickerdoodles I've ever had. They flatten to crunchy pancakes."
