Snickerdoodles

Funny name, but a seriously good cookie.  Everywhere we have taken these they have been a hit.  Because these are quick and easy to make, they have been our "go-to" cookies for years!

Ingredients

1/2 cup butter, softened
1-1/2 cups sugar

1 teaspoon vanilla
 2 large eggs
2-3/4 cups flour

1 teaspoon cream of tartar
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt

 2 tablespoons sugar
2 teaspoons cinnamon

Directions

Preheat oven to 400°F.
Cream butter and sugar in a large bowl.
Add eggs and vanilla.  Mix thoroughly.
Combine flour, cream of tartar, baking soda and salt in a separate bowl.
Blend dry ingredients into butter mixture until dough forms.
Mix 2 tablespoons sugar and 2 teaspoons cinnamon in a small bowl.
Shape the dough into 1-inch balls and roll the balls in the cinnamon-sugar mixture.
Place on greased cookie sheet about 2 inches apart.  
Gently use the bottom of a glass to flatten the balls out until about 1/2 inch thick.
Bake for 8-10 minutes or until lightly golden brown and firm on the edges.
Let the cookies cool on the pan for a few minutes and then transfer to wire rack to cool completely.

Happy munching!
