The texture of the material this recipe is printed on, and the fact that it mentions U & I sugar (twice) tells me it was cut from a sugar sack. As for the name of this cookie, according to Wikipedia, “The Joy of Cooking claims that snickerdoodles are probably German in origin, and that the name is a corruption of the German word Schneckennudel ("snail noodles"), a kind of pastry. It is also possible that the name is simply a nonsense word with no particular meaning, originating from a New England tradition of whimsical cookie names.”
