Ohhhhhh Addie, you don't know what you've been missing. I kept the cookie jar filled with them in the late '60's when I was a "Day Care Mother" to a gaggle of kiddies. They were sure cheaper than store bought cookies.
Chill the dough and roll into balls. Then roll them in the cinnamon sugar.
I might make a double batch for my grown sons...they'd love that.

You can freeze your Snickerdoodle balls and bake them off as needed.

Form and freeze them on a tray, when they are frozen toss them into a plastic bag and store in the freezer for a month to six weeks.

If you start them in a cold oven set at 375 to 400 they will thaw and bake in 15-20 minutes, the house will smell wonderful.

The more I read and hear about them, the more I am tempted to get out into the kitchen. Today is not one of my better days pain wise. I took a pain pill a while ago. Hope it kicks in soon. I want to make these so bad. And I have two boys that will clean them up real fast.

I am still in shock that Andy used a box mix!

I do that with oatmeal cookie dough and it would probably work with choc chip cookie dough, too. DH is the only cookie eater around here so I hate to bake a whole recipe because he will get tired of them before finishing all of them. I freeze the balls of dough in bags of a dozen each. I also give a bag to my DIL once in a while and she will bake them for my grandson. After giving her some of my cookie recipes she said she will never bake from pre-made dough again.

Taxlady and Addie, thanks you for your support. Though I don't use them often, I am not opposed to boxed dessert mixes.

No apology needed.
