I have the perfect recipe for Snickerdoodles. You’re gonna love me for it. Maybe you already use this recipe or one similar.
The trick is to not over bake them. Otherwise they will be crunch, instead of chewy.
And you must use the cream of tartar. It just makes them better.
I always get requests to make these when we get together with Lance’s family. My sil Melanie especially.
So I dedicate this post to you, Melanie!
