These are the best darn "Snickerdoodle Cookies" I ever ate and ate and ate...
I found it on Allrecipes.com, submitted by someone by the name of Juju Bee..she got it from an old recipe that her Great Grandma clipped out of a newspaper..and in her words "Grandma always knows best"...
One last note...they are addicting..had planned on cleaning up my mess today but decided to treat my hubby to cookies..but in all honesty I think I treated myself more and ate myself sick..consider yourself warned!! And I think I will take a nap now...
