I started baking with my mom when I was young. One of the first things I made was snickerdoodle cookies. So, being that snickerdoodles was one of my first recipes I made, it seemed fitting for it to be my first recipe to share here.

These cookies were extremely easy to make, they took about 20 minutes, and are so good. I was shocked that such an easy recipe was so good. This recipe is really simple and easy. Growing up my mom made really good chocolate chip cookies. Although she taught me how to bake we have very different styles. I love soft goofy cookies, mom mom loves crunchy cookies. The best cookies I ever had were from high school, they were crunchy on the outside but, essentially still cookie dough on the inside. Who knew the best things in life would only be 50¢?
