Every Christmas season my mom makes my favorite cookie, Snickerdoodles.  These tiny sugar cookies are wrapped in delicious cinnamon sugar.  They are best when they are warm, but they are always good.  I especially love them with a scoop of vanilla ice cream and a drizzle of caramel.  The second they start baking the whole house starts to smell like the holidays.  I’m always standing right at the edge of the kitchen, patiently waiting with a bowl of ice cream for my mother to be done moving them from the baking sheet to the cooling rack.  Immediately after she moves out of the way I race over and plunk two on top of my ice cream and watch the piping hot cookies melt the ice cream as my mouth turns into a lake.  I swear if you look delicious up in a dictionary there would be a picture of that.  I wish that I could be able to shake the hand of the person that created these, because that person officially is a flavor genius.  I think he or she is my idol.

  2. 2 eggs
