Snickerdoodle Cookies remind me of when I was a kid, they were always one of my very favorites!
It’s suprising how different recipes can turn out, even though they’re named the same.
My son Jake made this version last year for his Home Economics class…
They turned out a little bit more of a cake-style but still really good. Go ahead and enjoy them both 🙂
Happy Monday… I hope your long holiday weekend was nice and relaxing.
