* note here: don't press the snickerdoodles in when you put them on cookie sheet. Best eaten FRESH AND PIPING HOT!!!
If these aren't the best cookies you've ever eaten, well, my friends, you have done it wrong
These are comparable to the thing chocolate is supposed to replace
lol. Happy baking!
they have a tip in the cookbook: *Self-rising flour is not recommended.
