I substituted the shortening and butter with butter flavored crisco. The first time I made them the 400 degree heat seemed to high so I cut it to 350 and the cookies came out softer and more chewy. This was an easy recipe though and my 14 year old daughter thought they were fun to make!

What a snickerdoodle is supposed to be. Great texture and flavor. Made as written with no variations.
