Twelve Days of Christmas Cookies: Snickerdoodles

DAY 6: Christmas Snickerdoodles

Snickerdoodles are always a favorite cookie around here. Jazz them up for Christmas by rolling them in red and green sugar.

With traditional snickerdoodles, the dough is dipped in a mixture of cinnamon and sugar. When I make these with colored sugar, I mix the cinnamon into the dough, and dip the cookie balls just in the colored sugar.
