"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!"

    These are amazing. Just the right amount of crisp and soft. My dough chilled for a few hours accidentally ?? but they still turned out amazing. This is our new favorite snickerdoodle recipe. Thanks for a keeper.

    Why do I need to chill the pan?

    My one inch is a quilter's one inch, so these made many more than stated. (quilter's one. inch is the one on a ruler, by the way.) These were quick and fun to make. I've uploaded a photo, which may, or may not make the grade for this site, and may or may not appear with this review, but the cookies looked "right" and were about two inches each. Not overly sweet. I used fine-grained sugar by weight so mine ended up looking a tad smoother than most snickerdoodle. Will some day try with regular grain, but fine is what I had on hand.
