Yes it's the middle of summer and I actually turned on my oven today to bake cookies. When it's someone's birthday and they request a special baked cookie, how can you turn that down? I have never made Snickerdoodles and I actually don't ever remember tasting them before today. So I had to go searching on the Internet for a quality Snickerdoodle recipe. I decided to try the Food Network since I have had luck with most of the recipes I find on their site. I stumbled onto this recipe and it actually turned out really good.
