Aw, there's nothing better than coming in from the cold and having a hot cup of cocoa and some snickerdoodles! I was introduced to these cookies by my sister-in-law. I had never heard of them before and she was so surprised that she just had to share some with me.
It's been many years since my first encounter with these yummy cinnamon, melt in your mouth cookie, but I still love having them on a chilly winter day. I usually make them at Christmas time, but have been know to make them other times of the year too.
These cookies again are very simple to make. I like simple, especially when I feel like my life is a rat race sometimes. Isn't my life suppose to slow down a little now that the kids are in college? I guess I'm gonna have to rethink how I'm spending my time. LOL!
Anyways, when I mix up these cookies I usually mix them up the day before and throw it in the fridge overnight. The dough has to be chilled for at least an hour, so I figure what's the difference if it's overnight. For me it just makes it easier, because the mixing is done and all I have to do is roll the dough into balls and roll in the sugar/cinnamon mixture and bake.
Well here's day 2 of my holiday cooking recipes.Oh and of course I just automatically double the batch. They are just too good. Enjoy!
