Snickerdoodle Cookies

     When I was younger, my mom always made snickerdoodle cookies. She says they are the easiest to make with little notice, because you pretty much always have the ingredients on hand. It's true. For something that is so easy to make with what you already have, these sure do taste great.
     I've made them for many different occasions. This particular batch...well double batch...was for all the kiddos at my church. The cookie bakers don't have to be the little old ladies. I don't want to be in charge of all of the kiddos (I'm retired from  teaching after all), but I will bake them cookies and send them home. Your welcome.
     I've also tried some variations, such as adding in toffee chips. That has been my favorite addition.

1 cup shortening(or part butter/part shortening)
1-1/2 cup sugar
2 eggs
2-3/4 cup flour
1 tsp soda
2 tsp cream of tartar
1/2 tsp salt
4 Tbl brown sugar
2 tsp cinnamon

  • combine shortening, sugar, and eggs. Mix well. 
  • Add flour, cream of tartar, baking soda, and salt. 
  • Combine brown sugar and cinnamon in a separate bowl.
  • Roll dough into balls, and then roll in cinnamon/sugar mixture.
  • Place on cookie sheet.
  • Bake 8-10 minutes @ 350*. Cookies should just start to crack on top.
