    My Favorite Snickerdoodle Recipe




    **WINNER** Recipe of the Month September 2012


    I have made this recipe for several years now, since finding it on the All Recipes website. It is, in my opinion, the BEST recipe for this cookie that I've ever tried!

    I love this recipe because it "poufs" up really nice and gets a little crispy on the outside. It's got a great consistency...probably from the combo of shortening and butter.

    Lol. I don't make cookies often ever but I made choc chip cookies for my daughter last year or so. Actually baked some of the batch up and all. (something I never do) my then 3 year old ate some then tasted the dough and didn't want them baked anymore either. My girl! Haha
