Apple Snickerdoodle Cookies

Apple season is here! Can I get a hallelujah? Growing up, one of my favorite memories was making apple butter with my grandparents. We would spend the entire day stirring the mixture over an open fire and just spending time together. This time of year, as the weather starts to get cooler and I see posts about apple butter, I often reminisce of those lazy fall days with two people who I miss so dearly. When I bake anything apple, it immediately takes me back to those precious days!
