Snickerdoodles are great cookies aren't they?! They are like the cinnamon toast of cookies with a lovely crispy sugary outside and soft wonderfulness inside. And they are SO good right out of the oven!
3 cups flour
2 teaspoons cream of tarter
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 cups sugar
1 cup butter or butter flavored shortening (butter=chewier, shortening=fluffier; I used shortening)
1/4 cup sugar
2 teaspoons cinnamon
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a bowl whisk together flour, cream of tarter, baking soda, and salt. Set aside.
Using a mixer cream together 1 1/2 cups sugar and butter until light and fluffy. Add in eggs one at a time. Slowly add the flour mixture and mix until well incorporated.
Mix together 1/4 cup sugar and 2 teaspoons cinnamon. Shape dough into 1 1/2" balls and roll in the cinnamon/sugar mixture. Place on ungreased baking sheets 2" apart and bake at 350 for 10-12 minutes. Do not let them brown, bake until light and golden.
