Snickerdoodle Cookies

This recipe uses the simplest ingredients, but it’s almost impossible to eat just one snickerdoodle. The edges are wonderfully crisp while the inside is soft and chewy. Although similar to a sugar cookie, the snickerdoodle is rolled in cinnamon sugar just before baking, giving the outside a dark crackled top.
