"Soft, sweet, buttery cinnamon sugar cookies that are chewy and irresistible. Snickerdoodles! You don’t have to wait for fall or winter for these cookies. I love Snickerdoodles all year long, but they are a must at the holidays for sure. My friend Cathy is all about the Snickerdoodles. Sure, she likes chocolate chip and peanut butter cookies, but given the option she’ll go for the soft, cinnamon-y cookies every single time. We spent this summer going to local outdoor concerts, and one of our friends always brought cookies from her work cafeteria. There were always Snickerdoodles, and that made me wonder why I haven’t shared mine here yet!"
