The first snickerdoodles I remember ever tasting were at Helmet Starzacker's house. I don't know for sure if that's how his name is spelled. He was either a friend, or co-worker, or both of Dad's. His wife made them. I don't remember her name at all. I have a very poor memory in general. Anyway, I thought it was one of the best cookies I had ever had and I've liked snickerdoodles ever since.
I am keeping some for myself (and Gary), but taking some over to Jay and Julia tomorrow for having been so nice to me last weekend.
