My husband made these and used veg oil instead of shortening and only 1/2 the amount of nutmeg. They were the best snickerdoodles I've ever had!!! And I thought that I was the snickerdoodle queen.

The end result reminded me more of a sugar cookie, than a snickerdoodle. Even with the nutmeg there was no type of zing or anything that made this cookie memorable.

These were okay. The sugar/cinnamon/nutmeg needed to be doubled and these burned really easy, for some reason. And they didn't really spread. They were kind of snickerdoodle blobs. Not my favorite snickerdoodle recipe, but it's acceptable. It was easy, that's for sure. NOTE: They've been downgraded to a no-go. Husband did not like these at all.

Perfectly crispy with a nice light fluffy center. I used mace instead of nutmeg since I had none on hand, and they still taste perfect.
