My Grandmother’s Snickerdoodles

We all have memories of our childhood and warm snickerdoodles out of my grandmother’s oven happens to be one of mine. When I got married my mother had my grandmother write down some of her “famous” recipes and I am so grateful she did. Not only can my kids enjoy the same goodies I did but I get to look at a beautiful handwritten recipe. Who knew looking at someones handwriting could touch my heart! I hope you enjoy these delish cookies as much as we do!
