Default ISO: tried and true SNICKERDOODLE recipe

I asked my dad what cookies he wanted me to make this Christmas and he said he wanted his favorite, Snickerdoodles. I've never made them before, so I'm hoping one of you could share the recipe you use or link me to one you've used before. (I don't want to grab one off of a site without knowing if it will meet my dad's standards! )

Thanks!

I have one, but I'll have to type it up. It's the good old standard Betty Crocker Cookbook recipe. Let me go get it now.

Does your dad like pumpkin flavor? We've made these Pumpkin Snickerdoodles (lol, I just posted this recipe in the pinterest thread). THEY ARE AAAAMAAAAAZING. And they're pretty easy to make.

I do "cheater" snicker doodles........wanna know how?

Buy store bought sugar cookie dough. Roll in balls. Mix cinnamon and sugar (equal parts) in bowl. Roll the dough ball in it and bake per directions on dough package. Seriously.......it taste just as good has my "homemade" recipe. LOL

My GF made us a batch of these when Callen was born, and they were the softest most delicious cookies EVER.
Reason? Made with CAKE MIX. So. Awesome.

This is the recipe I used to make them today:
1 box of white cake mix (I used vanilla and they are still rather delicious)
1/4c oil (recipe recommends canola)
2 eggs
1/2 tsp ground nutmeg

1/4c sugar and 2tsp cinnamon for rolling them in.
Preheat to 350, line sheets with wax paper.
Mix all together (minus the rolling sugar/cinnamon) into a stiff dough with a spoon, roll into 1" balls, roll in sugar, place on sheets 2" apart, bake for 10-12 minutes. You want the edges set and lightly golden, but the centers stiff soft to the fingertip. Cool on a wire rack, don't refrigerate.

Absolutely delicious. They stay soft and chewy for a WHILE in an airtight container.
