Snickerdoodles might be my favorite cookie. I love the soft, buttery cookie taste mixed with cinnamon and sugar. But I must admit, I love everything with cinnamon sugar on it. This simple drop cookie is sure to become one of your favorites.


0.25 cup sugar
1 T ground cinnamon
1.25 cups sugar
0.5 cup shortening
0.5 cup butter, softened
2 eggs
2.75 cups flour
2 t cream of tartar
1 t baking soda
0.25 t salt

Preheat oven to 400. In a small bowl, combine the 0.25 cup of sugar and 1T of cinnamon and set aside. In a different mixing bowl, combine the flour, cream of tartar, baking soda, and salt and set aside. In a stand mixer, cream the shortening and butter. Then add in the sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in the eggs one at a time. Then, slowly incorporate the dry ingredients.


Roll the dough into 1.25in balls then roll into your cinnamon sugar mixture.



Place on the cookie sheet about 2 inches apart. Gently flatten the dough just slightly.



Bake in the oven for 8-10 minutes.
