Snickerdoodle Cookies

My absolute favorite cookie is the snickerdoodle cookie. I have always loved them. While I was in x-ray school, the hospital where I was assigned to clinical had a cookie day once a week in the cafeteria. Everyone in the x-ray department would gather up their money and send a few of us to go get everyone cookies. We would always time it just right to get there right as they were pulling the cookies out of the oven, so we could indulge in their warm, soft, goodness. Ah, those were the days…
