Crispy on the outside, soft and chewy on the inside, these snickerdoodles are fantastic.
I love to bake cookies. They bake quickly and you have instant satisifaction. Baking cookies makes your entire home smell like a bakery and brings you back to your childhood. These cookies are rolled in a cinnamon sugar mixture before they are baked in the oven making it fun for everyone to get involved with this labor of love.
Here they are all rolled in cinnamon sugar, lined up like little soldiers and ready to be baked!
Cooked to perfection!
