since we had the cinnamon out for our easy homemade cinnamon rolls, we decided to go ahead and make one of our favorite cookie recipes. snickerdoodles are really easy to make and don’t require any complicated ingredients – in fact, you probably have everything you need to make it in your house right now. and all you need to do is make a simple dough, roll it into balls, and then roll the balls in cinnamon-sugar. every time i make them they turn out just right. and not only will they make your house smell incredible, but if your family is anything like mine, you won’t even need a place to store them…they’ll be gone well before you have need to do that!
