Snickerdoodle Cupcakes

Holy Yumminess!
These are some of the most amazing cupcakes I have ever had.
Snickerdoodles are my favorite cookie, toss in a cupcake and tada!
These make 3 dozen cupcakes
We took them to a few families last night,
and now I am trying not to eat the rest.
Oh and did I mention the Cinnamon Butter cream Frosting?
Just stick my face in the bowl!
