My husband loves snickerdooles, so I try to make them every year. This is the first time I have ever used a combination of shortening and butter. Although these cookies are easy and taste great, they didn't seem to be as tender or to puff up as much as my old recipe.

Sherry, thanks for posting. These are very similar to ones I have made since the early '70's. Easy and delicious!

My husband loves snickerdoodles...so I have spent many hours locating the best recipe. This one wins hands down. The only problem is I can't keep them in the house for more than a day. Thanks for the recipe...it is definitely a keeper. I use all butter instead of the shortening and they are still great.

Thank you for a very special trip back to my childhood! What a fantastic cookie and a chance to share them with my family and staff! This was the first cookie recipe, maybe the first RECIPE, I ever attempted. THANK YOU!

I was compairing the recipe that I had for Snickerdoodles. I found two differences. 1. I have 1 1/2 Cups of Sugar and no Vanilla. THe rest of the recipe is the same. I also found that chilling the dough for about an hour helps to work with it.

I am entering snickerdoodle cookies in the county fair and needed to find the country of origin. I wasn't sure if they were from Germany or Sweden. Thank you for helping. Hope I win the prize.
