Mallory has not eaten chocolate since last May, since her drill season started. She has been very diligent and I am extremely proud of her. She gets to eat chocolate (according to her goal) at the end of February, so she's super excited! However...we've had to keep her happy with other forms of sugar. It's easier in the summer when there is a lot of fresh fruit, but now it's a little harder. We have, therefore, made lots of snickerdoodles. They are delicious and a staple in my parent's home. Enjoy!

Mix well. Form into 1" or so balls. Mix sugar and cinnamon together, and roll ball of dough in cinnamon sugar. Bake on cookie sheet for 8-10 minutes.
