Snickerdoodle Cookies

Snickerdoodle Cookies have always been a family favorite. My mom started making these for us when we were little, and we always have them at Christmas and other special occasions.

They are similar to a sugar cookie, but the addition of the cinnamon makes them so tasty! Simply beat sugar, butter, eggs, and vanilla in a large bowl until smooth and well blended. Stir in your dry ingredients and shape into 1 inch balls. What makes these cookies so good is that you mix up a sugar/cinnamon mixture and roll the cookie balls into that mixture and then bake.

It gives them a crackled look and they taste so flavorful. I hope you enjoy making these Snickerdoodle cookies as much as we do!

They are so easy to prepare and tastes great!  I will be making these for Christmas this year!
