Snickerdoodles that will make your husband love you and do the dishes.

Hello, lover. Also, sorry I am not a good photographer.

These snickerdoodles are so delicious. I made a gigantic batch and I was counting them to see how many I made and I couldn't figure out why I didn't have as many as it was supposed to make. My husband found them. In his belly. He ate 7 of them before they were even cool. And then he did all of the dishes and swept the floor. These cookies are magical. They are from, which is one of my favorite recipe sites. I've found many a great recipe there, so y'all should definitely check it out if you haven't already. So if you've got a husband, make these and he will love you forever. And if you don't, make them and maybe they'll snag you one.
