Reviewed as part of PAC 09 Spring. A very good cookie. The outside had a nice, delicate crisp while still having a chewy inside. It is very cinnamony- but that's what a snickerdoodle is all about. I baked on a plain cookie sheet and a non-stick cookie sheet. The plain cookie sheet took 8 minutes and the non-stick took 10 minutes. 11 yr old DD took the picture.

- 1 1⁄2 cups all-purpose flour
