I don't know when it happened, but at some point in the past few years I went from being a chocoholic to someone who complains when dessert is too sweet. I mean, what is that? I never, ever thought I'd become one of those people. But I am.
Anyway, give me a choice and I'll choose a cookie over cake any day, though it can't just be any cookie; there can't be too much chocolate, and it preferably needs to be fluffy and soft and slightly undercooked. Maybe that's why I love snickerdoodles so much.
I've been searching for the perfect snickerdoodle recipe for years now. Sometimes they end up too dense or too round or too sweet. This recipe, however, might just make for the perfect snickerdoodle.
