    This recipe is great! I followed the recipe exactly and had close to 30 cookies the first and second time I made them. My only qualm is that I wish they were just a little bit chewier--even when I slightly undercooked them they came out very crunchy. However, there was definitely an upside to that, as they are wonderful to be dunked into tea with in the morning. Great taste, and a good solid snickerdoodle recipe.

    These came out flat for me. Good recipe otherwise, maybe a bit on the sweet side.

    My family loves this snickerdoodle it is so hard to stop eating. I changed the vegetable shorting to butter and only used 1 tablespoon of cinnamon( but wished i had used more ;) . In the future, I will press the cookies down just a bit before baking. I think this will be a family favorite for many years to come!

    I made some changes to the recipe.For example, instead of 2 tbsp of cinnamon I used 1 1/2 and 1/2 of maple cinnamon sugar. Also, instead of 1/4 tsp of salt I used 1/8 tsp of salt. I did this because I used salted butter. I also used only one rack in the middle of the oven. Instead of 10 minutes in the oven I put it in for 12 minutes.

    Good concept, great once modified. Substituted vegetable shortening with applesauce, added 1 1/2 tsp cinnamon plus 1 tsp vanilla extract to the batter, and added in some ginger and nutmeg to the cinnamon coating. Also cooked at 350 for 12 minutes--for some reason 400 for cookies just seemed off to me. With these modifications, these cookies were excellent!

    I used all butter instead of the vegetable shortening, & they are GREAT. I do not notice a difference. Was skeptical after reading reviews, but mine were great. I baked 1 batch at a time rather than 2. Works best at 400* as it says, and by putting the one sheet of cookies on the bottom rack. I made the balls very small. Started out with golf ball sized dough, and got HUGE cookies. Made balls size of ping pong balls or even smaller and they worked wonderfully. *DON'T OVERBAKE. 7 to 8 MIN PLENTY

    This is a perfect recipe for Snickerdoodles. They turn out so beautifully they can be magazine covers. The flavor is fantastic. The directions are precise and easy to follow. This is an A+ knock it out of the ball park recipe for Snickerdoodles.
