You know what? I really LOVE cookies of all varieties and 'tis the season for lots of cookies. I find myself getting more and more creative in this type of baking, gluten free vegan that is. I enjoy creating tasty treats that others can also enjoy. Today the weather here is so windy I just hope I can finish this post before the power decides to go out, with the kids at school and hubby at work the house is amazingly quiet this morning with the exception of the cat snoring, yes I said the cat is snoring. LOL! Snickerdoodles have always been a favorite of mine. When I was a little girl my dad used to ask me to make him Snickerdoodles after dinner for his dessert. I have very fond memories of baking as a child. Enjoy these vegan gluten-free snickerdoodles!
