Snickerdoodles are my favorite cookie. Will’s too. I was given a review copy of Piece of Cake (which is a great book by the way) and when I was flipping through, I discovered that there was a chocolate version of my favorite cookie! Happiness all around. These make my Snickerdoodle just a little more sophisticated than the vanilla version. The outside is crispy and the inside is tender and chewy. These will be making more appearances at my house for sure. Everyone loved them.

These cookies are easy to make, the hardest part is waiting for the butter to soften. These cookies would be great for a cookie swap or to give as a gift. They are fairly sturdy, so they would package and mail well. I like to send Christmas treats to friends and family, so I am always trying to think of things that will ship well.
