Classic Snickerdoodle Cookies

If I had to describe these snickerdoodle cookies, I would have to describe it relating to my teenager Lizzy, crunchy around the edge but soft in the center covered all over with sweetness, sugar and a dash of cinnamon spice.  A modern twist on a sugar cookie.

Recipe almost reflects teen personality, but all ages can relate and enjoy.

I love the fact that my daughter wanted to make an old fashioned recipe like snickerdoodle cookies.  She made these in her culinary class at school and now she makes them all the time!

These cookies were truly amazing!  You have to try this recipe. 
In the meantime, have a wonderful Halloween and weekend everyone!
Thanks for stopping by!
