These are yummy! I subbed cane sugar for the brown sugar as I was out. For the nuts I used peanut butter chips instead only because my hubby asked if I could make snickerdoodles but with peanut butter and I obliged. Very smart cooking these at a lower temperature. The texture was soft and chewy as a snickerdoodle shoud be. The cookies are done when the tops start to "crack". Next time I am definitely making these with nuts! A well-deserved 5 stars! cg ;)
