When Will and Paige tried these cookies, it was supposed to be a single cookie for dessert one evening. But then Will finished his and looked wistfully at the other cookies sitting on the table. I saw him, but didn’t let on. Then he made his eyes big as saucers and wildly licked his lips. […]

I first learned about snickerdoodles when I was about seven and read the recipe in my elementary school’s fundraiser cookbook.
