Today I am participating in a wonderful birthday celebration for Meghan of The Tasty Fork. Meghan shares some wonderful recipes on her blog and I am so excited to be a part of her birthday celebration!
I am bringing my Snickerdoodles to the party.
This recipe is the one I currently use and is adapted from the Heartland cookbook published over 20 years ago. I have tried several adaptions and this is my favorite and has been my go to for many years. These cookies are so soft and light and are tasty as ever.
Try them and be sure to give a Happy Birthday shout out to Meghan!
2 sticks butter, softened
1 1/2 cup sugar
2 1/4 cups flour

These are one of my top ten favorite cookies. What is in your top ten?
