I am not sure what it is about these cookies, but he can’t seem to eat an appropriate amount of them. They are soft and cinnamony and sugary. In fact, let me illustrate his lack of self-control with these cookies with a story from our marital history.
About 12 years ago, Dave was traveling to a conference center in North Carolina, a 5 hour drive, to lead music at a week-long event. I thought it would be nice to send some homemade cookies with him for the week, as I knew he would be eating camp food the entire time. I made him a batch of Snickerdoodles (about 3 dozen) and sent him on his way. He called me when he arrived at his destination that afternoon and let me know that he had made it safely there and that he loved the cookies. I said, “loved…past tense?”. He said, “Yeah, weren’t they for the drive?” To which I replied, “You are going to be sick! They were for the week!” Unbelievable! Needless to say, I can’t make these regularly in our home, he won’t let me- he knows he has no restraint with them.
I wish I could give you a cookie sample on-line, but that’s impossible. However, I can give you a little music sample. (Well, actually, I can get my computer-smart husband to give you a little sample through this widgety thingy. I wouldn’t have a clue how to do this – or click here if you don’t see anything below.) You can take a listen below. Just click on the arrows on the far left beside each song to hear a little. Hope you enjoy! The CD is a collection of Hymns, old classics and a couple of new, modern hymns. I think it is so well done, with great instrumentation and arrangements. I am loving it! I couldn’t help sharing with you some of the other things that have been cooking at our home lately. Check it out. And make a batch of cookies while you’re at it- and see how fast they are devoured!

Dave and Julie!!!! We are so very excited about the new CD. And Snickerdoodles is our daughters favorite cookies too.
I read your blog regularly and love it. Your husband Dave has got a friend here who loves snickerdoodle to bits:) I was craving sugar bigtime after I delivered our baby girl 8months ago. I made 3 dozen snickerdoodle after returning from the hospital and ate them all in 2days. Can't wait to try your recipe:)
Love love love the new CD! I adore hymns. There is nothing more beautiful.
