December 4 is National Cookie Day. If you are participating in a cookie exchange or simply baking for your family, a yummy cookie recipe is key. While some people have recipes passed down from generation to generation, the novice baker can struggle to find a recipe worth sharing.

If you don't want to pass off store bought cookies as your own this year, consider this Snickerdoodle Recipe from Delightful Pastries Chef/Partner Dobra Bielinski. It is known as Santa's favorite cookie.

Snickerdoodle, makes 4 dozen
