One of the most popular recipes ’round these parts is rolo stuffed snickerdoodles. Because of that nifty little idea, I get asked for my best snickerdoodle dough recipe quite often. For a while I’ve been side-stepping the question, because I don’t want to give an endorsement I can’t stand behind. But now I’m ready for my recommendation to be made official! After much experimentation, these fluffy, gooey wonders are what I’ve deemed the “perfect” snickerdoodles.

Update: For those who have struggled with dough that is too thin, make sure your butter is softened and not melted. Also, popping the dough in the fridge for an hour may help (although I did not need to do this myself).
