Snicker Doodle

My sister planned to make a treat
For all of us to share
So she labored in her kitchen
With tender loving care

But when she mixed the cookie dough
She added too much salt
She had to multiply the recipe
To make it all come out

The cookies kept on coming
They came without an end
So when we hear “snicker doodle”
We all just laugh and grin

My sister planned to make a treat
And so she did that day
But the treat was this sweet memory
That will never fade away

    this is so charming. I've done this before, kept adding more and more ingredients to even out the salt or some other wrong ingredient. Great memory!!! luv, andrea

    this sure was a fun read, not to mention that it made me want to bake-- haha I don't have a recipe for snicker doodles though, just plain 'ol chocolate chip-- very sweet memories indeed! Don't you just love the smell of the house when something's a-bakin'?? -- nikko :)
