Snickerdoodles, yummy, moist, chewy cookie

These  snickerdoodle cookies are sweet and chewy, great with a cup of tea or coffee, and so addicting you won’t be able to eat just one.

I make a double batch for my family of 5 and often that doesn’t last us more than 2 days. I think I might have discovered why though,  turns out my husband’s coworkers like these so much that he brings half a dozen in his lunch every time I make them.

I use coconut oil, but you can try shortening if you want to.

I have tried making these snickerdoodle cookies into a cookie bar, which I sprinkled the cinnamon sugar topping on and I don’t recommend it, for some reason they turn out crunchy instead of chewy like they do when you make them into cookies. Too bad, I really like my quick cookie bar method.
