These were so easy to make and taste great! I found I had quite a bit of the sugar cinnamon mixture leftover, though. Thanks for the recipe!

Tasted like snickerdoodles, and maybe it's just me, but the dough was extremely sticky and hard to work with.

Really easy and good- however only make half of the sugar /cinnamon mixture...I threw away half of it as it was left over :(
