Real Snickerdoodles

growing up, i always thought "snickerdoodles" were cookies that had snickers candy bars inside of them. you'd make a simple peanut butter dough, stick a mini snickers bar inside of each cookie, bake them, and the candy bar would melt inside the cookie, creating a lovely gooey mess. they were often treats after soccer practice, or at a classroom holiday party-- served on a popsicle stick. while i now know that these cookies are not proper snickerdoodles, they are still some of my very favorites.
tonight i made them for the first time in years.
i recommend you try.
