This is an old standard as far as cookies go- here is my Granny's recipe for Snickerdoodles:
You will need:
- 1 cup shortening
- 1 1/2 cups sugar
- 2 eggs
- 2 3/4 cup flour
- 2 teaspoons cream of tartar
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 3 tablespoons sugar mixed with 3 tablespoons cinnamon
Roll the dough into tablespoon sized balls.
Roll the balls in the cinnamon and sugar mixture
Flatten the balls onto a baking sheet.
Bake for 8-10 minutes at 350 degrees.
