My grandaughters call me Nana and when they were very young and my daughter would bring them to my house to visit; they would run to the kitchen pull chairs up to the counter and say "Let's make Snickerdoodles Nana" They would make the biggest mess with the cinnamon; but you know, I never said a word about it. Today they are 24 and 27 and still expect to see my snickerdoodles in my cookie jar when they come to visit. These are also the cookies that I would make for 250 band kids when my son was in the school band in middle school up to high school.
