The Snickerdoodle tradition

The Snickerdoodle tradition

Cinnamon and sugar goodness!

Thanksgiving desserts are often a favorite for many, but it’s the family recipes that make this holiday special.

The traditional recipes include a variety of pumpkin pies, apple crisps and maybe some bread pudding. I shared my mom’s Banana Split Cake recipe last wee.

This week, one of our Wilkins employees, Corey Kirk, would like to share his mom’s Snickerdoodle recipe. Corey says this recipe was passed down from his grandmother. Her recipe was featured in the newspaper and online and is a real treat for the holiday each year.
