I came across Snicker doodle biscuits by accident. I was reading about it on the net and thought what can this biscuit be like with this beautiful and inviting name to it! Well, the outcome was trying it and enjoying it so much that I often bake them. It also became one of my biscuits that I add in my mixed box of biscuits which are a very popular biscuit box especially over Christmas time. My clients order from me before taking off to their holiday homes December holidays. I add the snicker doodles together with Gingerbread Biscuits as well as Small Shortbread Biscuits and plain butter biscuits.
