Patty's Snickerdoodle Cookies

     This is a delicious cookie that my daughter Patty makes.  It is a favorite in our house.  Anthony was bragging about them in school and his teacher requested that he bring some in for everyone to sample.  I'm sure that you will enjoy them as much as his classmates did!

Patty’s Snickerdoodle Cookies

1 cup shortening
1 1/2 cups sugar
2 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
2 teaspoons cream of tartar
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon cinnamon

Cinnamon Sugar:
2 tablespoons sugar
2 teaspoons ground cinnamon

How to:
  1.  Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
  2. In a medium bowl, cream together the shortening and 1 1/2 cups sugar.  Stir in the eggs and the vanilla. 
  3. Sift together the flour, baking soda, cream of tartar, salt and 1 teaspoon of the cinnamon.  Stir into the creamed mixture until it is well blended.
  4. In a small bowl, stir together the 2 tablespoons of sugar and remaining cinnamon to make the cinnamon sugar.
  5. Roll the dough into balls about the size of a walnut.  Roll the balls in the cinnamon sugar.  Place them about two inches apart on an un-greased cookie sheet.
  6. Bake for 8 - 10 minutes.  Edges should be slightly brown when cooked.
  7. Remove from cookie sheet to cool on wire rack.
  8. Enjoy!
