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 softened butter instead of shortening, sour milk for the buttermilk and rolled them in organic sugar. So yummy! Highly recommended.

I thought these cookies tasted great although they tasted more like a cakey snickerdoodle. Delicious, will make over and over! I didn't have buttermilk so I used sour cream.
