Mom's Snickerdoodles

O how I love it when my momma visits. She whipped up this snickerdoodles in a snap. There is something about someone else working in your kitchen on a yummy surprise that just gets me excited! They were amazing. Like 4 straight out of the oven, and another (Few) once they were cooled. O, and 3 a day for the next 3 days until they were gone. Then we made some more. Mmmm I love snickerdoodles, thanks momma:)
