                                City girl Snickerdoodles

As a lover of snicker doodles cookies ever since i was a little girl,but as of late i have not had a good one in sometime,as a person who love to eat healthy you find that some of your loved cookie recipes like main ask for alot of butter,sugar or egg's because that i began looking for a snicker doodle that cut down on the fats after a some research on the web i found a book that not only had a good for you snicker doodle but other cookies i loved too.
The book is called 'Vegan cookies invade your cookie jar' by Isa chandra moskowitz & Terry hope romero so i was weary before buying this book i know what a vegan is and all i cook vegan meal's all the time but i had never don any baking before so after a little of to buy or not to buy, i get the book form my library to look at to see if it was any good and you know what it was.
