Whats In The Cookie Jar : Snickerdoodles

When my grandson Jerame was a little boy we would always make Snickerdoodles together, and they became one of his favorite cookies. When I found out that he would be visiting us before he starts  his summer internship for college, I wanted to surprise him with his favorite Snickerdoodles.

No matter how careful a person is when the lid comes off of the glass cookie jar it makes a noise, it is really hard to sneak the cookies out of the jar.

Whose Hand Is In That Cookie Jar?

It's My Grandson Jerame In The Cookie Jar Going After His Favorite Snickerdoodles
