Send the Snickerdoodles Recipe!

One evening last week my older son sent me an e-mail with a request – Could you send me the Snickerdoodles recipe? A mom who loves to cook and to bake will respond to this type of request very quickly! It dealt with baking. I also knew that if he wanted a particular recipe, it was definitely a favorite from his childhood. When he was an undergrad in college I baked, packaged and mailed (click here) these soft, yummy cinnamon flavored cookies to him. A couple of years later, packages were mailed to his younger brother. This treat has also been mailed as part of birthday presents.

Now, his request could be answered very easily with a click here and a click there. On my website I posted this scrumptious recipe, perhaps one year ago. Clicking on the link would give my son easy access to a printable recipe card (click here).

O.K., I did add these little extra instructions: Store the cookies in an airtight container - they last about 3 - 4 days, before becoming a little crispy. Usually this favorite is eaten by then, anyway. And ... they do not freeze well.

Ah, Snickerdoodles, I need to bake a batch this week, also. :) Soon, I will be getting a text message telling me how everything worked out.

Do you bake Snickerdoodles? You and your family would enjoy them. Snickerdoodles look and taste so good! After the tasty cookies are baked, our cookie canister is emptied quickly. For that reason, I never have a picture to share of this delicious family favorite.

That's my hubby's favorite cookie and we have a recipe that his mother has used for years. It is just the best cookie! Love your post!
