    Juju Bee's Note:

    These snickerdoodle cookies are so delicious, and they have the best texture. They are so fast to put together too! I actually got it from an old recipe that my Great Grandma had clipped out of a newspaper. Grandma always knows best!

      I read lots of the reviews and they do not do justice to how AWSOME these cookies are! SO easy my 3 and 5 yr old kids did it by them selves (with supervision). Since I'm in South America I had to alter it just a bit...BUTTER comes in 200g sticks here so I just used a whole one and we can't get cream of tarter,& baking soda is hard to come by so I added the two measurements together and put 3 TSP BAKING POWDER. And put the oven on the 160-180 C degree setting for the same time as the recipe said...along with the other review's tips I also put in the vanilla and melted the butter and stirred it in after it was coolled, as well as substituted 1 of the teaspoons of cinnamon that you roll them in, for ginger powder...They are THE BEST COOKIES EVER! I can't hardly stop eating them! is an IMPORTANT TIME AND FIGURE SAVER TIP: the recipe can be doubled, refrigerate until firm, shape into 2, 2" diameter rolls, wrap in plastic wrap and freeze! when your ready for cookies, slice 1/2" thick slices, press into coating, place on cookie sheet and put in a COLD oven and turn it to the regular temp. for 20 dough lasted perfectly a month in the freezer until it was gone. This way you only eat as many as you cook and you don't have to make the dough all the time.

      These are fantastic cookies. They are light and buttery. I got through half of the batch before I got the size perfected. In this case smaller is better, they are still delish if they are big but they are the best consistency when you make the balls the size of a large bing cherry or a childs small rubber bouncy ball.

      With money tight this year, i made cookies for gifts this christmas. This recipe was so easy and sooooo delicious and a big hit. i took a plate of them to work and everyone loved them. Not to mention they are the only cookie i made that actually stayed soft, the others all got crunchy and hard. thank you sooo much for this wonderful recipe!
