My family has never really celebrated Christmas/Hanukkah/Festivus/Yule.  My mother is Jewish and my father is Atheist, so...you can see the conflict there, yes?

Anyway, in my house growing up, the winter holiday season has always been about food.  When my dad remarried (when I was about 7 y/o) my stepmother gladly joined in the festival of food.  She taught me to bake - one of my favorite things to do. 

When I moved out of my mother's house 22 years ago I took her copy of Betty Crocker's Cooky Book (took, not given - I am such a bad kid  Wink ).  This book was a first edition that my mom had picked up for pennies at a garage sale when she and my father were first married.  I still have this book, but it is falling apart and I am afraid to use it, since it will probably just crumble to pieces.  As I am sure you can imagine, I was thrilled when they reissued the Cooky Book a few years ago.  Seriously, it has some of the BEST cookie recipes I've ever baked.

Long story, I know - so, tonight I made Snickerdoodles, and wanted to share.



Mmmmm tasty!

They look yummy.  I like snickerdoodles, but I've never made them.  Good job.

I've seen that cookbook in the store and I've always wanted to pick up a copy. I haven't had snickerdoodles in years and I've been craving them a lot lately! They look really yummy.  Smiley

Hi Tanza!

Snickerdoodles are a soft cookie dough shaped into balls and then rolled in cinnamon and sugar.  They puff up when cooking then flatten out to what you see in the picture.

There are tons of recipes online, but I think the one in my book is the best.  Grin  Send me a PM w/your e-mail address - I'll see what I can do about getting you a copy of the recipe.  I am just not comfortable posting it on here since it is copyrighted.   Cheesy
