This past weekend I wanted to take something special to a class that I have been attending. I decided that I would take my Great Aunt Carol's Snickerdoodle Cookies. I don't know where she got the recipe but I have been making these cookies for as long as I have known how to bake, my mom calls these one of my specialties. Snickerdoodles are a favorite in my house and as soon as I bake them they seem to be gone. They were a great hit at the class, everyone enjoyed them. Here is the recipe, I hope that you like them as much as my family and friends do.
