Grandma's Special Snickerdoodle Cookies

This is not just any Snickerdoodle recipe, this is my Grandma’s special recipe.

It’s special because she put an extra dash of love into every single cookie when she made this recipe. I don’t know if I put the same amount of love into the cookies, but I know she was with me every step of the baking process.

When I released Her Snickerdoodle (Man Card Book 14), several people asked me about a Snickerdoodle cookie. So, here it is! The best way to describe the cookie in my opinion- it’s a cross between a sugar cookie and a buttery cookie. Each bite is packed full of cinnamon happiness.

This recipe is easy to make. Like, really, really easy to make. Which in some ways is probably dangerous. Hubby and I did share some of the cookies with a few friends, but we may or may not have devoured the rest. When the container was empty we both wanted more. See why putting the recipe in the “easy to make” category is dangerous.

Now, if you’ve been following me on social or reading my newsletter for a while, then you know I used to follow the keto diet (low carb). BUT, I'm not really doing it anymore. Even though I'm not following the diet, I still find it fun to create low carb versions of recipes.

You can find more low carb recipes here.

Creating the low carb options is such a fun way for everyone to enjoy the delicious treat.

Are you ready to cozy up with a book and devour more than one cookie?
