  • “A nice soft cookie with the taste of snickerdoodles blended in.My DD said it reminded her of Elephant Ears.My kids loved these!I do have to confess I cheated due to time and used a sugar cookie refrigerated roll as the base.I had to add a bit of flour to make it less sticky but it worked out great.Your sugar cookie dough is just like I’ve used in the past so I know that will work out fine too.Made for the Name Game tag event.”
