Like a good book, a broken-in pair of slippers, or an old easy chair, snickerdoodles are a sure bet for finding instant calm. So when you want to strike a comforting note - for yourself or someone special - this is your cookie.

1/3 cup sugar
2 teaspoons ground {cinnamon}
1 teaspoon ground {nutmeg}
1  roll (18-ounce) refrigerated sugar cookie dough, well chilled
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray cookie sheets with nonstick cooking spray.

Combine sugar, cinnamon, and nutmeg in a small bowl.

Cut cookie dough into 12 equal slices. Cut each slice in half. Roll each piece into a ball; roll balls in sugar mixture. Place balls two inches apart on cookie sheets.

Bake for 10 to 13 minutes or until edges are golden and centers are just set. Cool on cookie sheets for 2 minutes. Transfer cookies to wire racks and cool completely.
