I suppose holidays are the perfect excuse to eat lots of butter, sugar and cinnamon. That can be in the form of cake, cupcakes, smoothies or cookies.
I have loved Snickerdoodles since childhood but never tried baking them on my own. So, this time instead of getting them from the store, I decided to try homemade cookies.
After making them, did I realize how easy they are to make and how much I was missing out on homemade ones.
When you look at the recipe, these are simply made by creaming unsalted butter and sugar together, adding two eggs one at a time, vanilla while beating with a hand mixer. Add the all purpose flour, baking powder and salt.
