These are my little boys favorite cookie.  When I asked him what he wanted to take to his year end school party he said that Snickerdoodles were even better than chocolate chip.  The best part is that he helps me make the Snickerdoodles.

I've had this recipe ever since college days.  A friend of mine made these delicious cookies and graciously gave me the recipe.

The biggest trick to good Snickerdoodles is in the baking.  They must be removed from the oven when they are just beginning to show the slightest browning on the edges.  Bake for too long and you get crackers.  The proper Snickerdoodle is barely crispy on the outside and soft and chewy on the inside.

I think I might need to get some new cookie sheets.  This cookie is trying to run away.
Now a Snickerdoodle or two with a cup of coffee.....that's a little piece of heaven.

Happy baking,
