The Best Snickerdoodles Ever!

Here's a yummy recipe for snickerdoodles... passed on to my family from my Grandma's neighbor, Mrs. Butterworth.  These cookies are sweet, and soft, and delicious.  Please make some soon... I hope that you like them as much as I do!

2. Cream together the butter, sugar, eggs, and vanilla.
