i didnt think that these were soft/ chewy at all!!! in facct they were VERY hard and very crunchy. Maybe it was because i used regular crisco

This recipe is easy and the cookies are fantastic. They lasted almost a week and were still soft. I had rave reviews after taking it to a work meeting. You can add some holiday style with colored sugar for an easy and festive cookie. I used orange sugar because it was almost halloween.

These are the snickerdoodles I remember from being a kid. I wish I had the butter-flavored Crisco. I think that would have been better. I had plain. These were good. I thought they needed 9 minutes at 400. I have a thermometer in my oven and the time was a little short.

I used half Crisco, half butter and I increased the amount of cinnamon in the "topping". Baked at 400*, my cookies were done a just under 8 minutes. These taste like Snickerdoodles are supposed to taste. NOTE: The first couple of days, these were nice and soft but they hardened after that. For a mom who bakes for school lunches, that was a drag. We ate them anyway. Waste not, want not.
