I tried this recipe today. I'd thought they'd be great for when Santa comes. Sorry, Santa, you're not getting any! These cookies are soooo good. They deserve more than 5 stars. I agree with others about not rating a recipe if you don't follow the recipe 100% but I'm going to do it anyway. I used 1 stick of butter & 1 stick of Promise margarine. I wanted the butter for the flavor & texture but didn't want all the cholesterol. The dough was a little soft for shaping into balls, probably because of the margarine, but I handled them gently & it worked just fine. Refrigerating the dough would probably make it easier to handle. I love Snickerdoodles but rarely make them because my recipe calls for a 1/2 cup butter & a 1/2 cup of shortening. I try to avoid shortening as much as possible because of the transfat. The next time I want Snickerdoodles, I'm going to use this recipe using the butter & margarine & roll the balls in the cinnamon-sugar before baking. The end result should be a tasty but healthier Snickerdoodle. Another reason that I like this cookie is because it doesn't require any special or expensive ingredients like chocolate chips or nuts. I usually have those things on hand but not always. I hate it when an emergency cookie craving happens & I don't have all the stuff. These cookies are easy enough to handle any cookie emergency & they're very good. I rolled walnut-sized balls & got 5 & 1/2 dozen cookies about 3 inches across. Thanks for the recipe!
