Snickerdoodle Cookies

snickerdoodle cookiesWhere these cookies got their name is beyond me. They have nothing to do with snickers candy, for sure!

This is an easy recipe, and gives variety to the usual chocolate or oatmeal cookies that are prevalent today.

You’ll need the usual cookie ingredients, plus cream of tartar. And, for the mixture to roll the dough in, you’ll need cinnamon and sugar. Easy mix, easy bake. Yum!

  1. Thank you. This is the second time I’ve been asked about this, and I for sure thought I corrected it, but it surely wasn’t there. 2 eggs and bake at 350. I’ve added it this time, and hopefully this time it will stay!
