Snickerdoodle Cookies are a favorite in our house. We like them a little under baked so they are nice and soft.

I use the same recipe that I have for years. The Butter Flavor Crisco gives the cookies are great buttery flavor and keeps them soft.

    I wish it weren’t 10 o’clock at night – they sure do sound yummy right about now! ๐Ÿ˜€

  3. I love snickerdoodles I haven’t ever been able to make em myself they never come out right. I might just have to have another go at it. ๐Ÿ™‚

  4. Yum! These are my hubby’s favorites. I should make them tonight!

  5. Those sound delicious! My kids love homemade cookies. Thanks for playing along.

  6. Don’t have a snickerdoodle recipe and the only time my kids get these is out at their grandmother’s (and they are rarely there). Sounds like your son knows what he’s doing! I LOVE this and that you were so sweet to help him. ๐Ÿ™‚


  7. I have a different recipe for these, but htis one sounds delicious too!
    My daughter calls them snickering doodles and they are one of our favorite cookies!!

  8. These are a classic and so easy to make (at least it sounds like it).

    Can I use real butter in place of the crisco?

    1. Sure, I don’t see why not. I like the Butter Flavor Crisco because it makes the cookies soft, but real butter will do the same.

  9. I had a friend in college that we called Hoosier. That is so funny. Wow your son can make these. Wow.
