I have always wanted to make snickerdoodles and always imagined them to be really sugary and cinnamon-y, kinda like the cinnamon cereal squares. They weren't. The cinnamon taste wasn't obvious and I don't think I coated them with enough sugar. They did however turn out to be rather pretty cookies, just like pictures from other blogs. This recipe is from smitten kitchen.

Y said that my snickerdoodles were tiny when she first saw them. I thought they were rather big cause two bites were required when eating my cookies. Aren't cookies supposed to be bite sized so technically mine should've been considered big?
I halved the recipe and ended up with about 40 cookies. My baking time was 13 minutes cause of the size of cookies. These cookies spread a fair bit so make sure they are spaced apart form each other when baking.
