Snickerdoodles Recipe

My family sure loves COOKIES! And usually we try and try a cookie recipe until we find the perfect one. Well, we’ve used the same Snickerdoodle Recipe for the longest time, but my mom decided to try a new one a week ago. We were all pleasantly surprised at how good, soft and easy they were to make. I still can’t decide which one I like better, so I thought I’d share it with you today and you could decide for yourself. :)

Both are easy and both result in Soft, Delicious Snickerdoodles so I think you’ll love either one. 😉

    Thanks for the recipe. I made them today and they’re very good. I did use all butter instead of shortening. WIth my small OXO cookie scoop, this made 5 dozen cookies. Now to hide them from myself. :)
