Super Soft Snickerdoodle Cookies

READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by Bekahbv

Quick and Easy recipe from my family to yours. The 1/4 teaaspoon of salt can absolutely be left out if you want less salty cookies. It's just the way I've always had them.

Cookies rose just fine but we're very bland, crumbly and cake-like instead of moist and chewy. They looked perfect from the outside but just didn't taste as good as my regular recipe, which contains vanilla and a mixture of butter and shortening.
