The Snickerdoodle is a sugar cookie, probably of German origin, characterized by a cracked surface. They can be crisp or soft–it’s your preference. The point is, they are delicious.

You can have fun with the name, but even more fun with the flavor. The Snickerdoodle is nothing to laugh about, but offers plenty to smile about!
