The Cookies with a Decoration That Requires No Actual Decorating
Snickerdoodle dough is similar to sugar-cookie dough: standard baking ingredients plus butter, sugar, brown sugar, egg and vanilla. What makes these cookies special is a quick roll in cinnamon sugar before baking: It crinkles on the surface of the cookies in the oven and gives them a light spice. No additional sprucing up necessary.
