I found this recipe while I was in middle school many years ago. I truly fell in love with these before ever eating a regular snickerdoodle. I found this recipe while I was in middle school many years ago. I truly fell in love with these before ever eating a regular snickerdoodle.

    i was able to cut lots of calories using half prune puree and half applesauce instead of butter. And i added a teaspoon of orange zest and a pinch of nutmeg in the batter and it made them super yummy! The orange makes it a seasonal delight! - 12/25/09

  • My husband RAVES over these! He was more than okay w/me baking these rather than finding some store bought ones. He even said they were definitely sell-able! Thanks for sharing! - 7/17/11

  • Great tasting cookie, even though it does not taste lke the traditional Snickerdoodle we are used to. But with a glass of 1% milk, a wonderful low cal snack - 4/18/10
