Snickerdoodles!

Hey everyone! Snickerdoodles are an all time favorite, great cookie. To make them festive simply roll them in cinnamon and colored sugar to match any holiday! I've made red and green many years for Christmas, how about orange and green for Halloween...
And we all know that a balanced diet is a cookie in each hand!
This recipe is from Allrecipes and it's new to me. I think it's tastier than the one I've used before. It also has 3,060 reviews for 4.5 stars. They are sweet, crunchy and a bit chewy all at the same time. And in case anyone is wondering, I did roll one in little orange and black nonpareils... yea, don't do that. It's better to use sugar:@) The cute Fitz and Floyd plate came from Marshalls many years ago.
