If you are looking for a gluten free snickerdoodle recipe look no more. This snickerdoodle recipe is the best gluten free version that I have tried.
My husband loves snickerdoodle cookies. I have made a lot of them, both regular and gluten free, over the years. This recipe is his favorite version.
They are so good that both gluten-free eaters and regular eaters enjoy them.
These gluten-free snickerdoodles are based on a recipe that my sisters and I have been making for close to twenty years.
They are the perfect combination of firm edges with a soft chewy center.
I have tried this snickerdoodle recipe with individual gluten-free flours and different blends.
