Lately, the kids have been asking for snickerdoodles. We made these lots in Africa, where, unfortunately, my favorite recipe is packed away. I decided to bake them some and stick them in their Valentine's mailboxes! I used this recipe from Joy of Baking and while they turned out tasty, there was something missing. I remember my recipe using cream of tartar, and I'm convinced that's the secret ingredient. However, until I can return to my treasured recipe, I believe these will do just fine!
