Snickerdoodle Cookies

I’ve become a baking mad woman this week.

This coming weekend I’m hosting a cookie swap with a bunch of my friends, so I have to make cookies for that. I am making cookies for this blog post I’m working on (stay tuned). One of my friends had surgery so I’m bringing her soup, with some dinner rolls and banana bread, gotta bake those. My Life Group from church is having a holiday potluck and I decided I would bring desert, made bars for that and that same night we’re having a Hymn Sing and refreshments after and I made cookies for that. Which is the reason for this post.

Plus I got this cute little snowman tray and have yet to use it for any of my recipes
