    I love snickerdoodles, too! I was going to make some recently, and noticed a lot of recipes had shortening, and that doesn’t appeal to me. (Most of the time)
    I must try your version with butter.

    I was looking at your brownies yesterday and YUM! They look amazing! I rarely make a batch of homemade brownies, but I think I need to now!

    I want to make snickerdoodle cookies but I don’t have cream of tartar and I used all my baking soda. Is there any substitute I can use?

    I knew that if I was looking for a perfect snickerdoodle recipe that I should come straight to your site. Thank you! These are wonderful! (Noticed baking soda was not incorporated into the directions below the ingredient list). Great cookie to bring to a warm weather bbq !
