"I agree with the previous reviewer that these taste like cakey snickerdoodles and I wouldn't like it any other way! I made them because I ran out of vanilla and I needed sugar cookies, also I used sof..." See moretened butter instead of shortening, sour milk for the buttermilk and rolled them in organic sugar. So yummy! Highly recommended."
