My husband and I love snickerdoodles but every time I made them, they turned out crunchy and we like them soft. You will never find an easier way to make these cookies. I got this recipe from a lady I work with and have made them this way ever since. You can also make some variations for the holidays. These are great cookies to make with your kids as there are few ingredients.
