Milk and cookies! It’s basically the best way to eat a cookie (even Santa knows this!) The only way that we will eat snickerdoodles is with milk! It’s just the only way to do it. 🙂
So, taking these pictures were the best because the cookie on the glass fell into the milk…… so of course we had to eat it! Yum yum!! ♥♥♥
It hasn’t felt very much like Christmas lately because its been so warm here, so we tried to get into the Christmas spirit by making cookies and listening to Christmas music. It definitely worked! We now have all of our christmas gifts wrapped (we never wrap gifts this early).
Any way, this is a great recipe to take to any christmas party, or to leave out for Santa on Christmas Eve!
This recipe was our grandma’s, and you know how those go sometimes… Lots of things to do but very little instructions on how to do it because, well, grandmas just know how to do it. The recipe says to chill the dough,thats all. How long? Grandma sure didn’t put it into the recipe. But we chilled ours for an hour, and it worked.Needless to say, that’s what we recommend you do too. It also says to roll the dough into walnut sized balls. Um, we’re not sure exactly how many people know what the size of a walnut is…… we just used a cookie scoop and cut it in half.
