    They were great had to cook them for longer but tasted delicious and were a hit with the family

    They turned out great. My favorite cookie that I no longer have to buy. Thank you❤️❣️

    Nice and fluffy. Definitely needs 8 minutes for my preference. 6 minutes was a bit underdone. I live at 4,800 foot elevation. That may have something to do with baking robe.

    Bad recipe My cookies flattened out like wafers. I chilled the dough for a couple of hours. I was embarrassed to serve them. Something is definitely off on the ingredient amounts

    Great!!! No changes needed. Just like my mom used to make! Chewy inside...slightly crisp outside 😍

    They were super runny and when I put them into the oven it turned into one big puddle. It was really bad.

    Excellent cookies. Didn’t have Cream of Tarter on hand so used baking powder. But still delicious.

    Amazing! Cookies might need more than 6-8 minutes. I usually give them about 10-11.

    These are wonderful! Add some extra flour and bake a little longer than instructed and you’ve got yourself a bomb diggity cookie!

    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.

    Super good and soft!

    Perfection!! I appreciate all the trial and error steps to find the perfect recipe.

    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.
