Brown Sugar Snickerdoodles

I love Snicker-doodles… My mom use to make them all the time when I was growing up… they’re my Dad’s favorite cookie!!!  So when I came across Brown Sugar Snicker-doodles… I had to try them!

This recipes stays nice and plump and soft in the center… You better watch out … they’re a little dangerous to have around!!!  I think this batch lasted us a little under 24 hours!!!

Happy Baking 😀

  1. This is another recipe I’m eager to try, again these are not readily available in stores in Alberta, Canada. When I’m in Arizona for 6 months, everyone has these yummy cookies! I’d been meaning to find a recipe – and Voila! stumble across you. Thank you again for all your great recipes. I plan on stopping at the grocery store today to get what’s needed for for the breads & coookies I’ve pinned.
