Snickerdoodle Cupcakes

My husband's favorite cookie is a Snickerdoodle!  So the other day when he called with some good news, I wanted to surprise him with a treat to celebrate.  The kids couldn't decide between cookies or cupcakes, so we combined the two!  They were so yummy and tasted just like Snickerdoodle cookies, only better, because they had Cinnamon Cream Cheese Frosting on top!
