Snickerdoodle cookies have a spicy and sweet taste.

Looking for a different cookie, that has a unique taste, the cinnamon, and cream of tartar add a special flavor to these crackly surfaced cookies.  One of my earilest memories was making snickerdoodles when I was a girl scout.  Since then I have made these cookies for cookie exchanges, and when I wanted something sweet, and tangy.  If you haven’t tried these cookies before, you are missing out.  These cookies are rolled in cinnamon and sugar to give them a wonderful crunchy crust.
