I’ve been searching for the perfect snickerdoodle recipe for years. You wouldn’t think that such a simple recipe would be so elusive but I guess I’m really picky. I’m currently visiting family in Arizona and it brought back so many memories of when I lived with my mom a couple of years ago. Every Sunday we would all be itching for cookies, because that’s what Sundays are all about, and snickerdoodles were always my go-to because we had all the ingredients on hand. Most snickerdoodle recipes have shortening in them which I hate. I really try to avoid using shortening at all costs. I started making this recipe years ago and recently made some to take to church and everyone loved them. When they asked if they could get the recipe on my site I realized it wasn’t on there.
This is supposedly Mrs. Field’s snickerdoodle cookie recipe. It has a slight crisp on the outside with a thick, cakey center. Which are just the qualifications I need for the best snickerdoodle cookie recipe.
