Snickerdoodles are yummy cookies. I like the recipe in The King Arthur Flour Cookie Companion book. The recipe is on pages 60 and 61. Try using all butter. Butter tastes better than part shortening. When I make cookies I bake a few at a time. The rest of the cookies are place on a cookies sheet and frozen. The cookies can be placed close together. After they are frozen then take them off the sheet and place them in a freezer container. When I want to have fresh baked cookies I take a few cookies out of the freezer and place them on a parchment paper lined cookies sheet. The cookies unthaw enough to bake while the oven is heating. I like to bake a variety of cookies, snickerdoodles, oatmeal scotchies, chocolate chip. This is easy to do because I have many varieties of cookies frozen.
