Snicker Doodle Cookies

This is the unofficial cookie of the Grass Home. When we first started in 1984, this was one of the first baked goods that were made in our kitchen. Since then, its irresistible taste and chewy texture have been a favourite of residents. John doesn’t even want to think about how many he’s eaten over the years.
