My Mom made snickerdoodles when I was little, and since she died when I was thirteen I can get kinda sentimental about them! I think these were my chocolate chip cookie of my youth and beginning baking efforts. I still laugh about a time a good friend baked me the most SUCCULENT batch of snickerdoodle cookies for my birthday, but was not forthcoming with a recipe. It might have been a year later she confessed they were from a tub in the frozen aisle of our local Martin's Grocery Store! I was just happy to be able to recreate them.
Fast forward ten years and I hit the kitchen to make up a batch of Snickerdoodles! (I just love saying the name!)
Lots of folks did these cookies, read more interesting accounts here, and here.
If you want the recipe comment and I will repost it up here.
