My favorite version of these classic cookies

Top Review by MaMas Apprentice

Good but not great. I really liked the texture of the cookie but something seemed a little off about the flavor. While these will definitely be eaten and enjoyed, I think I will find another recipe to use next time I make snickerdoodles.
