Just read this entire thread and I'm still puzzled by the whole "snickerdoodle" thing.

Snickerdoodles are great with hot chocolate. 

Unfortunately, as I am now diabetic, my snickerdoodle consumption is quite limited.

BTW, those of you who are familiar with snickerdoodles, try adding some anise to your recipe for something really unique.

I must disagree with the Snickerdoodle recipe as given.  You don't just 'dust' the cookies with cinammon.  After the dough is made, you form the cookies by making balls/nuggets of the dough (which is flavoured with vanilla, though the anise is intriguing).  You then roll the ball of dough in cinammon-sugar, put it on a cookie sheet and lightly flatten it a bit with the bottom of a cup or glass or the like. 

We'd have to make a fresh batch to take pity on the lack of snickerdoodle-tude wth SS and Ozgeorge and Timos, I'm afraid. They're a favourite around here as gifts to teachers and neighbors and family.

They make you skinny right?

Just say yes, as I'm a little chubby this time of year.

I am torn between "Betcha can't sat just one".  "Try it, you'll like it". and just a sympathetic look.  :)

When something has a cup of butter along with plain and cinammon sugar, the skinny-tude just isn't likely.

Ebor's right - the cinnamon and sugar must be infused with the dough.  No "dusting" allowed.
