Snickerdoodles and Sneaking Cookie Dough

Snickerdoodles are a wonderful cinnamon sugar treat. They’re delicious year round, but my love of cinnamon peaks in the Fall. I made these for my community group last week and my sweet friend John was over while his dad was watching football with my hubby (WHODEY!)

I let him help… but he got a little floury:) So cute right?

After he helped with the flour, I was rolling the dough balls in the cinnamon sugar. He saw me, pulled over his step stool and said “What you doing Jackies?” I showed him how to roll dough balls in the cinnamon/sugar mixture and put it on the baking sheet.

He started lining up the dough balls then all of a sudden, I see a tiny hand quickly grab a dough ball and pop it in his mouth and say “mmmm yummy.”

It was so fast it happened before I could intercept! Sorry Curry… some of us just love cookies:)
