Flour ~ it's important

Today is finally Fall here in the PNW.
It is gray
It is raining (altho around here WA call it "sprinkling" ~ we are like Eskimos and snow, we have a million different names for types of rain)
Joj is on his way home from a biz trip in SC and the kids are at school. That means the house is QUIET and it seemed like a good time to bake. 
I'm making some long promised Snickerdoodles.
Whenever I am looking for a recipe I always start my google search with "the best ____ ever".  I found one that sounded simple enough, didn't require crisco (which I was out of) and had a pretty picture of the final product.  Okay, sold.
I measured, mixed and baked.
When I checked on them, I was NOT happy with what I saw.

I really HATE when a recipe flops.  All that time and expensive butter down the drain (literally). It sucks more when you realize that YOU didn't read the recipe correctly.  Yes, cookies will spread if you leave out a C of flour. Umm yeah. I believe the kids these days call it a "facepalm".
Long story short I found another recipe, read it very carefully and the result is pretty impressive if I do say so myself. 
Wishing you a very yummy weekend
