Eggless Snickerdoodles

Not really sure why these cinnamon sugar cookies are called Snickerdoodles , but they are a real favorite amongst young and old alike . I love sugar cookies , but there is something about cinnamon sugar that just hits the spot . These crackly topped cookies are a delight to see and eat.
