Snickerdoodles



The best pictures I got of these guys was already wrapped up. We made HUGE cookies, as the group requested. We made one batch, accidentally, with the cinnamon and sugar all mixed in (rather than rolling the dough in the cinnamon/sugar) and they were actually really good too! Try it either way.
