Snicker Doodles

My favorite cookies with a dash of cinnamon sugar and a good amount of butter, how can you go wrong?  I do prefer the soft and squish over the cake like, but really I snicker for any doodle.

Crunchy cake like delights are quick and easy to make.  I put the cinnamon sugar in a large measuring cup and tossed the cookie balls in it to create a perfect coating.
