Default Origin of the name snickerdoodle

I want to know the origin of the cookie, and more particulcarly of the name itself: Snickerdoodle. I already know that, according to www.internationalrecipiesonline.com: "Originating in 19th-century New England, this whimsically named cookie has a characteristically crackly surface and can be either crisp or soft. The dough sometimes contains nutmeg and cinnamon as well as raisins and nuts. Traditionally, snickerdoodles are sprinkled with cinnamon sugar before being baked. The name appears to have no particular meaning or purpose . . . other than fun." I am looking for older or more definitive information.
