This recipe has become a family-favorite. It's made with butter and has more cinnamon in it. These Snickerdoodles have also become the cookies I make for kid functions. With all of the allergies these days, these Snickerdoodles seem to be the safest. There's no nuts or chocolate in them; just lots of lovely cinnamon.
