Where 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!
