One of the best things about Janelle recipes is they are EASY & YUMMY. When I need a quick recipe for ANY occasion I head straight to Janelle’s recipes.

Janelle blogs over at Comfy in the Kitchen  and has SO many recipes for any occasion. Today she will be sharing with us “Best Ever Snickerdoodles”.  I LOVE some chocolate so I  know this will be another winning recipe to add to the books and the kids will surely love them too. Cant wait to whip this up!

When you get a moment stop on over to Janelle Blog and let her know I sent you. Every Friday she has a link up called Feasting in Fellowship Fridays!

 Best Ever Snickerdoodles”
When last minute company is heading over, what do you make? Snickerdoodles! When you are fresh out of chocolate chips and your teenage son’s friends come over to “hang out”, what do you make? Snickerdoodles! When it’s cold and rainy outside and you are in the mood to bake something simple with the kidos…what do you make? Snickerdoodles!

Ladies, this is my ALL-TIME favorite Snickerdoodle recipe. There is NOTHING that smells better than these cookies baking…many a candlemaker has tried to put this smell in a jar and sell it, but alas…the real thing is just unmatchable. The mixture of butter, vanilla, cinnamon and sugar is good enough to make anyone’s mouth water! YUMMmmm….

And here is the “Top Secret” recipe…Shhhh…
In a large bowl, add butter, sugar and brown sugar
Mix well with mixer
Add an egg and vanilla
In a bowl mix together flour, salt, baking soda and cream of tartar.
Mix together
*chill* for 30 mins in the refrigerator (do not skip this step, my Dears). Scoop into Tablespoon sized cookies.
Roll in cinnamon and sugar
Bake in a 300 oven for 14-16 mins (they will still be gooey) The key is to leave them on the baking sheet for a couple of mins so they will continue to bake. Then, place them on a cooling rack.
Wanna bite??? These are dense and buttery and ohh so good.
