These Snickerdoodles are a combination of sugar, cinnamon and soft moist deliciousness.
My daughter Brianna absolutely LOVES Snickerdoodles!! So, a few years ago I added this awesome cookie to my list of Christmas cookies that I make each holiday season.
To me, family recipes are always the best. I have been working hard at getting our families recipes together to share with our children and their children. This is one of those recipes.
This recipe comes from my Mama, or Nonni as my children call her. She is the absolute best cook I have ever met. So when she told me she had this recipe for Snickerdoodles I KNEW they would be fantastic ………….and boy was I right!!!!!
I wanted to share Nonni’s recipe with y’all so that you too could add it to your Christmas Cookie list.
Make it a great day, you deserve it!!
