Praline Snickerdoodles

I have always loved snickerdoodles; as a kid, making them was a dream come true – I was actually allowed to play with the dough and roll it into balls!  That classic flavor is still in these yummy cookies, but it’s all dressed up for the holidays in these Praline Snickerdoodles.  The addition of toffee chips and pecans is a holiday combination you are going to want to add to your cookie tray!
