Snickerdoodles

on April 3, 2014


When my little monkey said she wanted a new kind of cookie I decided to try snickerdoodles because Grammy has always said they were her favorite cookies.  So this recipe is Grammy approved, unfortunately her new favorite is peanut butter blossoms with the Hershey’s kiss in the middle… I don’t think I will be making those anytime soon so we will stick with snickerdoodles for now.

Since the baby is still under a year I used agave nectar for this recipe but it could easily be swapped with honey.

I adapted the recipe from one with a 5 star rating on food.com.  you can view the original at http://www.food.com/recipe/soft-snickerdoodle-cookies-97496
