Until today, I had never in my life made or tasted a snickerdoodle.
I'm quite glad to say that as of today, I have officially made them, though I have yet to try them. (Though Bunny says they are awesome). I didn't quite follow the recipe - I substituted chopped almonds for walnuts, because I didn't have any, and regular sugar and extra vanilla for vanilla sugar (since again, I have none).
They sure smelled good, and a dozen are packed away with Bunny to go to school tomorrow for his little friends. (I'm such a lame-o, and I love it.)
