Momma's lil' baby loves shortenin'

A true and simple pleasure it is to bake a batch (or two) of scratch cookies on Christmas night, in a quieted house, for a contented family (and canine). Paula Deen's Snickerdoodles may not be as good as "shortening bread", but they are a delightful way to end your Christmas day or anyday. Soooooo good they make me wonder why I ever go to all the trouble of chocolate chips, nuts, coconut, raisins, zest, etc. As a matter of fact, the sound of my oven timer reminds me I need to go and make sure the second batch turned out as well as the first...


  1. Ohhhhh snickerdoodles!!! My all time favorite cookie. They look so yummy I can almost smell them. :)

    Thanks for visiting my blog and I've enjoyed yours, also. You are now in my favs!

    Merry Christmas!

  2. Will you share Paula's recipe? I looked on the website and in my Paula's Holiday recipes, but no Snickerdoodles.

    Happy holidays.
