Snickerdoodle Recipe

INGREDIENTS:

1 Tablespoon Sugar
1 Tablespoon Ground Cinnamon
1 Cup Shortening
1 1/2 cups Sugar
2 Eggs
1 teaspoon Vanilla Extract
2 3/4 cups flour
1 teaspoon Baking Soda
1/2 teaspoon Salt
2 Teaspoons Cream of Tartar

INSTRUCTIONS:

In a bowl combine 1 Tablespoon sugar and cinnamon; set aside. In a second bowl, cream shortening; gradually add 1 1/2 cups sugar, beating well. Add eggs; beat well. Stir in Vanilla.

In a separate bowl, sift together flour, baking soda, salt and cream of tartar. Add sifted ingredients to creamed mixture; stir until well blended (I acutally had to get in there and kneed with my hands). Shape dough into 1-inch balls and roll in cinnamon/sugar mixture.

Place snickerdoodles 2 inches apart on baking sheets. Bake cookies at 400 degrees for approximately 6 minutes (mine needed a couple minutes longer) or until lightly browned. Remove from baking sheet to wire racks for cooling
