    I just made these for my son who’s home sick and loves snickerdoodles. They taste great, but they came out flat. I used organic wheat flour instead of all-purpose bleached…i wonder if thats why?

  9. Stef says:

    Anon – Could be. Wheat flavor behaves very differently from all purpose flour. Maybe try half and half next time?
