My family loves Snickerdoodles. After reading the reviews, I was sure this cookie was going to become an addition to my Christmas cookie list. Unfortunately, this is the worst cookie I have ever made.
The first batch I made didn't even spread out. They were little balls of baked dough. When I made the next batch, I pushed the balls down a bit with the bottom of a glass. It helped them to spread out a little but not much. They looked more like hockey pucks. The consistency resembled that of a biscuit. If it didn't have cinnamon and sugar, it would have been perfect to eat with sausage gravy.
I think my cookies didn't turn out because of the shortening. I say this because I tried another recipe that was almost exactly the same (minus the shortening) and they turned out perfectly.
