I'm not sure snickerdoodles are technically considered a holiday cookie, but they are my holiday cookie. We might get coerced into making gingerbread cookies too, but these are for us. We were going to make paleo cookies, but since we added butter, these snickerdoodles aren't quite paleo.  ...continue reading "Holiday Recipes: Keto Snickerdoodles"
