Snickerdoodle Recipe

Mmm, I love a lot of cinnamon.  That’s why I add extra cinnamon into my dough.  I also love the smell of pumpkin spice and add it to the cinnamon for the topping.  They are extra yummy that way.  My husband is the fan of Snickerdoodles and I include them into my Christmas cookie list each year.
I hope you love Snickerdoodles too.  If you try my recipe, I would love to hear how they turned out.  Thanks for stopping by and I hope you enjoy.

    These look so yummy! I noticed your post on the link-up party and immediately zoned in, with my mouth watering! LOL Snickerdoodles are my favorite cookie, but like chocolate chip, each recipe can be totally different from the last. I like the soft and chewy ones like you get from the Winn-Dixie bakery. And the more sugar and cinnamon, the better! I will be trying your recipe this week. I would actually do it today but I don’t have any tartar.

    Thanks for sharing!
