On Christmas, the first thing my brother in law asked me when I when I walked into the door was where the snickerdoodles were. My brother in law is the pickiest of all the family eaters. When he was a baby, my mother in law claims that he would only eat chicken fingers, grilled cheese, and french fries.
I’ve tried several recipes for snickerdoodles, and this is the best one that I found so far. They remind me of the packaged snickerdoodles that my mother in law always would buy, except more delicious.

1 1/2 cups sugar
2 large eggs
