Make the best snickerdoodle cookies with this highly reviewed cream of tartar that Amazon reviewers swear by!

The other day my husband was a little sad.

In an attempt to cheer him up and make him smile and make his back feel better, I decided to do something that I almost never do.


Bake his favorite cookies on this planet.

His mother’s Snickerdoodle cookie recipe.

He was gone for the day and I wanted to surprise him, so I had the day planned out. I had my checklist. I had all my to-do’s lined up for the day and baking cookies were slotted from 4:00-5:00 pm. Somewhere around noon I decided to pull out the butter to let it soften and put the other ingredients on the counter to save time.

So in case you have a cookie eater at your house? Here's the BEST snickerdoodle recipe on the planet. It's gotten 5 out of 5 stars from everyone who's made it.

It’s so easy to make.

You just follow the instructions and roll the dough in the sugar and cinnamon.

Place them on a cookie sheet and bake.

And then?

Your day will be full of happy!
