    These are delicious! I even swapped out the flour to be GF (Namaste brand). Moist on the inside, just the right amount of structure on the outside. I baked for 8 mins, let cool on pan for 5 mins, then transferred to cooling rack. Will definitely make these again.

    Incredible. Cooked for 10 minutes (convection bake oven) instead of 7-8. I made them bigger than suggested, so adjust cooking time accordingly. Best snickerdoodles I’ve ever had. I use a teaspoon of cinnamon and nutmeg in the dough as well as 1 and a half teaspoons of vanilla to add more flavor.

    Very good! Recipe says to cook for 7 min but my gas oven needed a little longer. 3-4 min more. Very good recipe!

    They don’t taste like snickerdoodles, where is the cream of tartar?

    They taste amazing! HOWEVER I put my oven on 400 for 8 minutes and they were burnt on the bottom and uncooked in the middle. Next time, I am personally gonna try the oven at 375 for a little longer.

    Turned out great! Very fluffy. Next time I’ll double the ingredients because they were gone in a couple of days.

    I used smaller balls than the 2 tbsps cause those were just too big for the time. Also it was way too sweet, just time I'll use less sugar in the dough

    Too big in size and agree with another reviewer they should be 2 tsp instead of tbsp. Also a bit too doughy in the middle.
