The end result reminded me more of a sugar cookie, than a snickerdoodle. Even with the nutmeg there was no type of zing or anything that made this cookie memorable.

My husband made these and used veg oil instead of shortening and only 1/2 the amount of nutmeg. They were the best snickerdoodles I've ever had!!! And I thought that I was the snickerdoodle queen.
