These cookies are wonderful! I love the softness of the cookie combined with the crackly textured outside. I will make these again, they are the perfect snickerdoodle to me.

I have been looking for my snickerdoodle recipe from my home ec teacher for years and every one I found just wasn't the same. I'm am so grateful you shared your. It is the one. The best I have ever made or eaten. My entire family just loves them. I keep the dough on hand to make when I feel like a little something sweet. Great Recipe. Teresa in Toledo,OH

After looking through the snickerdoodle recipes and thinking mine wasn't here, I found your which is the same as mine to the letter. SO, I'm giving this one 5 stars as I think it's the best out there. They stay soft, have a great flavor.
