Snickerdoodle Cookies

I love easy to make cookies, especially this time of year. My kiddos always want to make 10 different kinds of cookies, so I like ones that are quick and easy to make. These Snickerdoodle Cookies are ready from start to finish in about an hour – including the chill time! If I’m only making one kind of cookie, I use this time as my tidy-up time.

Snickerdoodle Cookies are easy to freeze, too. To freeze cookies, make cookie dough according to recipe directions. Roll cookie dough in cinnamon sugar mixture, and place balls in a single layer on a baking sheet lined with parchment. Freeze cookie dough balls until completely frozen. Transfer to labeled ziplock bag. To cook from frozen, add an additional 2-3 minutes of cook time.
