Chewy Grain Free Snickerdoodles

Snickerdoodles make me think of my friend, Anne.  Along with french toast and mac and cheese- her other specialties.  Traditionally made with cream of tartar, snickerdoodles are a delicious morsel of butter cookie with a sprinkle of cinnamon on top.  And just like Anne, they're simple and classy, also really pretty. 

Fresh out of the oven, these have a slight crunch and a chewy inside.  Once you stow them away in tupperware or in the fridge, they become all chewy.  I like to give them a little re-start with a slight toasting before eating them the next day.
