This classic snickerdoodle recipe is my very favorite! I have been making these for years and it took a lot of tast testing to get these to be just right.
These snickerdoodles are soft, light and delicious. I have been asked for the recipe dozens of times over the years and today I am excited to share it with you. These go perfectly with a nice cup of cinnamon hot chocolate too!
It has been a whirlwind of activities lately. Our trip to Europe was wonderful and so inspiring! It is so great to step away from everything you know and get out to explore new cities. I find traveling so revitalizing and I cannot wait to share my experience with you.
But first, cookies!
I have honestly missed baking while on my travels. That did not stop me from eating bavarian-cream filled sweets, but I just missed some foods from home and also missed baking something myself.
So we are celebrating being back home with these soft and light Snickerdoodles!
This easy Snickerdoodle recipe is one I have adapted numerous times over the years and we love them. These snickerdoodle cookies are soft and cake-like cinnamon bundles of joy and go perfectly with coffee, tea, and lemonade.
This is the best recipe after several iterations over the years.
