    Jo's Note:

    Everyone I know loves these cookies. I took a batch to a party once and disappeared within 30 min. with people asking for more. I especially like the cinnamon and sugar. I must admit, it is not my creation; I got it from the Pillsbury Complete Book of Baking.

      I wanted to make some Snickerdoodles, and first used another recipe (not from 'Zaar!)--they were awful & I ended up throwing them out. Then I found this recipe--they were exactly what I was looking for - a little crispy on the outside, but soft & cakey on the inside. Because we like a lot of cinnamon flavor, I added about 1/2 tsp of cinnamon to the dough. If you're looking for the perfect snickerdoodles, look no further...these are indeed the BEST! Thanks for posting, Jo! -M :-)

      Believe it or not, this is the first time I have ever eaten a Snickerdoodle cookie. I have heard of them and have read the recipe a number of times but always thought it sounded kind of boring. Well today I wanted to make cookies but did not have chocolate chips or raisins in the house so I thought of this recipe. They just came out of the oven and I must say I am stunned at how good they are. YUM! I can hardly wait until the kids get home from school to try these. Thanks for the great recipe Jo, I am thrilled with these!
