Do these really stay soft after cooling? That seems to be elusive for me: thick soft chewy snickerdoodles!

This is my favorite snicker-doodle recipe. It's everyone's favorite. If you are not sure about this recipe, I urge you to try it as is. It's amazing. Always soft and chewy (for days)!!! =)

Will have to try these. My husband loves snicker doodles but only soft chewy ones which I have not mastered.
