    These cookies turned out amazing... So I guess we use a lot of cinnamon in my house, because I only had 1 tablespoon of cinnamon left. I added about 1/4 tsp of ground cloves (would have preferred allspice, but we were out of that too) and about an extra tablespoon or 2 of sugar to the cinnamon, I was trying subdue the cloves a bit. They smelled and tasted amazing. Of course I have a ton (à tablespoon or so) of sugar mixture left over, so we'll have some in our coffee and on toast as well.

    Came out perfect. My dough was a little too loose so I added extra flour and they came out just right. Never made snickerdoodles before so I got lucky with the dough consistency, It needs to be like a very thick cake batter.

    These came out perfectly! Soft on the inside, crispy edges, perfectly cinnamon and sugary.

    Flawless snickerdoodles. I was worried that using a rounded scoop and not pressing the cookies flat before baking would result in cookies that were too tall, but they flattened out just right to stay soft but not undercooked.

    Fantastic. I found it good to gently roll in cinnamon/sugar after rolling in to balls, rolling gently in hand to press it in, and roll in cinnamon/sugar one more time to coat a bit more.

    Came out flat and still gooey. Not enough flour in the recipe.
