Snickerdoodles

WARNING! Only make these cookies if you are prepared to eat half the batch yourself ;). These snickerdoodles won’t fail you. They are soft, melt-in-your-mouth cookies; not to mention quick and easy to make. My mother got this recipe from an old newspaper clipping and has passed it along. Mother always knows best!
