i have a couple problems. 1. i really love baking. 2. i really love eating baked goods. so my way of doing what i love but not gain100 lbs, is baking and then letting other people eat the goods. when i brought these to our incredible set-up team at church a few sundays ago, they ate them up literally in a very short time period. (i swear i only ate two!)

it was my first go at snickerdoodles and i have no idea why. they are an incredibly easy cookie to make and an even easier cookie to consume.

have a go!
