Week 5–Snickerdoodles

This week my oldest baby turned 12!! 12!!! I cannot believe it.  So this week I asked him what cookie he wanted me to make for the blog.  He answered before I even finished asking the question…snickerdoodles!!  These have long been his favorite cookie.  They aren’t ones that I typically make, but my mother in law does!  We tried a couple different recipes, but settled on the classic recipe that my mother in law uses with half shortening and half butter.  So here you go!!
