I really love Snickerdoodle Cookies.  I am not sure why, but I don’t make them often.  And my husband loves apple desserts.  This is the perfect combo for our house.

I had my niece over for the evening (the sweet girl in the middle).  She and my girls played and played all night and then of course I had to load them up with sugar before bed.  They all cleaned their bowls.

I thought this dessert was wonderful.  I topped it with a scoop of vanilla ice cream and enjoyed it warm.  I also convinced myself that it was a perfectly acceptable breakfast the next morning.
