These snickerdoodles are soft, chewy and bursting with cinnamon and sugar.
My mom and her sister Lucille, better known as Sis, spent a lot of time together shopping, cooking/baking, and sewing. Aunt Sis had stopped driving, so my uncle would drop her off to spend the day with my mom just hanging out. I would get home from school and they would have spent all day just cooking and baking stuff! Just because! I think my mom was more of the baker, so she would whip up all kinds of cakes, cookies, and pies. And of course she would make enough for a small army.
One of Aunt Sis’s favorite cookies was snickerdoodles. I can still picture Aunt Sis sitting at the kitchen table with one cookie in her mouth, another in her hand, and my mom taking a cookie sheet out of the oven. I have inherited my mom’s love for the kitchen, and my cousin Richard, has inherited Aunt Sis’s love of eating snickerdoodles.
To keep up the tradition, I try to bake up a batch from time to time and drop them off to Richard.
These snickerdoodles are soft, and are rolled in a mixture of cinnamon and sugar. To Aunt Sis’s defense, the smell of these cookies baking in the oven fills the house with a sweet and spice scent that makes it is hard to eat just one.
This is for Aunt Sis and Richard!
