mmm.....snickerdoodles... way to soft for my personal liking, but they're still super yummy! if only i could find a crispy and crunchy snickerdoodle...*sigh*...(maybe a sugar cookie with cinnamon and sugar?)..o wells...but anyways, this past weekend the oven was filled with super soft and chewy snickerdoodles. They were delicious, but not crunchy at all, and so not one of my favorite cookies. The cookies were very soft and puffy; perfect for any chewy soft cookie lover!
