MY GLUTEN FREE- SNICKERDOODLE, EXCEPT THAT THIS ONE IS NOT A CAKE OR A COOKIE, IS WHAT I CALL “IN BETWEEN”
My twin daughter Suzy and I tested this recipe. Definitely, a snickerdoodle cookie is crunchy like most cookies are; a snickerdoodle cake is soft like all cakes are; however, this snickerdoodle recipe gives us the in-between version, not crunchy but not too soft. The best part, is totally gluten free. Try it, you’ll love it.
