Skillet Snickerdoodle Cookie

Pat Duran


Did you know that in 1776 when young American Colonists marched off to fight in the Revolutionary War, they dreamed of returning home to Mom's cooking and the most popular cookie of the times. This recipe has been up dated as present-day cooks do not realize that butter the size of a goose egg is about 1 cup. And like most of our grandmother's cooked with a pinch of this and a handful of that and ingredients the size of walnuts,or peas.
Found this recipe while surfing on the internet.
