These were amazing!! 

They hardly lasted the morning! 

I sent a baker's dozen with my husband to work this morning and everyone was wanting more! 

Snickerdoodles are a favorite of mine. Always have been always will. 

The Hummingbird Bakery Cake Days has a recipe too slightly different that I plan to try out sometime. Time for a little comparison! :0) 

Do you have a favorite cookie or biscuit? 

Snickerdoodles tend to be a little more cakey, but all we need to know is that it is delicious!

  1. Snickerdoodles are a family favorite. Growing up I thought they were from a secret family recipe because no one ever heard of them... until one day another kid in school had some in his lunch. I then found out it was just a recipe from a cookie cookbook. I was devistated, but got over it. They will always be my favorite.
