Snickerdoodle Cookie Recipe


It isn't often that a cookie has a many storied background. The Snickerdoodle cookie recipe below creates perfectly wonderful cookies, even though historians can't seem to agree on the cookie's roots.

Others swear the cookie was named in honor of the tall tale hero, Snickerdoodle. Whichever is the true origin won't matter once you taste these cinnamon rich parcels of delectable goodness.
