REVIEW: 5 star recipe rating
I grew up with traditional snickerdoodles and loved them. I wanted to try something different and came across this recipe. My 3yo. loved rolling them in the cinnamon and sugar and loved eating them just as much. We brought some to my mother's office and needless to say the were gone by the end of the day.

Cookies were good, the family enjoyed them. The recipe left out when to add the flour. I added with other dry ingredients. They turned out great. Thanks
