Best Snickerdoodle Cookies

Thanksgiving break is officially over! Back to life. Back to reality. My kids headed back to school and the hubs and  trekked back to work this morning. During a quick trip to the grocery store to get the staples we needed for the week I noticed a huge display in the middle of the store. A huge cookie display. All the icing, flour, sugar, chocolate chips, peanut butter and cookie containers your heart could ever desire. Well, at least, the things, in no particular order, that my heart desires! That’s right. Thanksgiving is over and cookie season is upon us.

There are so many different and yummy kinds of cookies…and so little time.  Are you this cookie obsessed like I am during the holidays?  Do you get together with family for a cookie baking extravaganza? Do you participate in a cookie exchange? If you answered yes to even one of these questions, then you MUST try my Best Snickerdoodle Cookies recipe. It’s ahhhmazingly delicious.
