The Yummiest Snickerdoodles

Snickerdoodles remind me of my childhood! I can remember making them with my mom and siblings all the time. And while I am normally a healthy eater, I do believe in indulging in a good treat occasionally. These snickerdoodles really do the trick for me. Plus, snickerdoodle cookies are such a good cookie to dip in milk.¬†That warm, cinnamon flavored dough melting in your mouth. Mmmm….

But, I digress. (See my recipe below!)

The Yummiest Snickerdoodles

Snickerdoodles are one of my favorite cookies to make with my kids cause there is something for all of them to do. I roll them into balls and then they roll it in the cinnamon and sugar mixture. It can create a little bit of a mess if your kiddo spills the sugar, but it also conveniently keeps my hands a little less messy.
