Best Snickerdoodle Cookies Ever

I have tried now about 5 different Snickerdoodles recipes. I even tried to alter them here and there to see if they would taste better. Don't get me wrong they all were good but not amazing. This is the best one so far. The original recipe that I tired was from Lovin’ From the OvenEnd up making few changes and as of today this is the best snickerdoodle cookie recipe ever. If you try this recipe and end up changing it up to make it better, please let me know. Snickerdoodles are my son's Matthew's favorite cookies, so each year I try to make them taste better and better.
