Snickerdoodle Cookies

An indecent love of cinnamon-sugar will one day be my downfall, but not today. Today I shall be making mini snickerdoodle cookies as a decoration/accompaniment to a lovely set of snickerdoodle cupcakes. All for the preparation of Thanksgiving. The one time of the year where I can’t say no to an array of decadent desserts.

Here are the ingredients needed for this recipe:

Step 6: Slowly ass the dry ingredients in 3 parts into the butter mixture. (Side Note: the dough will become thick and may require being stirred by hand.)
