    Thanks for the recipe, Megan! Merry Christmas to you and your beautiful family! Snickerdoodles are my all-time favorite cookie so I was excited to give your recipe a try. My daughter, Ellery, and I went through your ingredients step by step, but the cookies, while still quite delicious, didn’t come out anything like yours. The dough was very soft and sticky when we rolled in the cinnamon/sugar and came out of the oven flat as a pancake. I suspect Ellery was short on the flour by 1/2 cup. Would that make my cookies turn out the way they did?

      Hey Chad-Deb! Ok, so with cookies (and baking in general) there are a few components that can be temperamental, such as making sure your leavening agents are fresh (purchased within 6 months). Make sure all ingredients are fresh are a good first step. Also, you can always refrigerate the dough until it is more pliable. Despite the refrigeration, though, your cookies should not be as flat as pancakes. Your leavening agents aren’t doing their jobs! I hope this helps!
