I don't think this is like most other Snickerdoodle recipes - in fact, I'd say they're more of a molasses or spice cookie. Either way, they are really good, and really chewy for those who like that kind of cookie. The cornmeal gives them a really interesting texture that I like a lot. The recipe says it makes 70 cookies, but either I made them too big or I ate more dough than I thought because I only got 56! This is from a 2003 Woman's Day magazine.
