snickerdoodles and a giveaway

 Everybody is this house loves a good snickerdoodle.
Come on, who doesn't love a good snickerdoodle.
Even me...although I no longer eat them (gone paleo).
I hear they are pretty tasty though.

 Snickerdoodles are the ultimate old school cookie.
I remember stealing frozen snickerdoodles frm my Grandma's deep freeze in the basement of her home...eating them as quick as I could in her dreary laundry room.
I think they were snickerdoodles.

The other day, in a act of love (and grace) I made a batch for sharing at a dessert party and batch for the cookie jar.

  4. I love, love, love snickerdoodles, but don't qualify for the giveaway here in the great white north!

    What I should do is make a batch of my own here, so that your grandma's house can smell like snickerdoodles again! Not positive you were referring to your Grandma B, but I think there's a good possibility. If so, the deep freeze isn't in the basement anymore and the laundry room is in a different spot. Actually the whole house is 1/2 mile west of its original foundation. But this house holds so many memories for so many people that I always feel challenged to live up to her reputation of warm hospitality and good cooking.
