Snickerdoodles

The holiday season has begun... For my family, that means it's also baking season!! We take baking very seriously. If you have ever been to one of our Christmas parties, you know that this is not an understatement. Baking runs in our blood. We pass down recipes from generations, which means that we hold all our recipes very sacred. I am going to share our famous Snickerdoodle recipe though since you all are such loyal followers.


As with any cookie recipe, measurements should be as exact as possible. Once you stray from the recipe, you alter the chemistry of the cookie. Therefore, I do not recommend diverting from this recipe. However, it's delicious, so you shouldn't have to change a thing.
