If you’re going to a picnic, potluck, or barbeque, these snickerdoodles are a simple crowd-pleaser that everyone will enjoy.
If you’ve never had snickerdoodles, try them out: they’re like sugar cookies with a touch of cinnamon and just a bit of salt.
First, mix the dough. Depending on how soft your butter was, you may need to refrigerate it for about half an hour to make the cookies easier to scoop.
In a bowl of cinnamon and sugar, roll each ball of cookie dough.
Place on a baking sheet about 2 inches apart.
