Snickerdoodles are my favorite cookie and this is now my favorite snickerdoodle recipe! They are just how I like them - a little crunchy on the outside and soft in the middle. The only change that I made was to roll the balls of dough in the sugar and cinnamon mixture because my daughter was helping me and that's her favorite part of making snickerdoodles.
The dough seems very gooey, refridgerating it for at least an hour before baking helps. I make balls and roll them in the cinnamon sugar and I don't flatten them, just how I've always made snickerdoodles. I also don't grease the baking sheet, just use foil or parchment paper for easy clean up. These come out puffy and perfect even with those deviations from the recipe. They are too soft to eat straight from the oven, I let them cool on a cooling rack. They are soft and delicious and stay soft even when stored in a container for a few days (not that they last more than a day usually when I make them)
It's already been said - delicious. I used parchment paper instead of greasing the cookie sheet.
