I think snickerdoodles are one of my favorite cookies. They are just simple cookies that are just simply delicious. I think they are a must with homemade ice cream. I rarely make ice cream without making snickerdoodles to go with it. MMMMMM!


1 cup soft shortening (part butter)
1½ cup sugar
2¾ cups flour
2 eggs
2 teaspoons cream of tartar
1 teaspoon soda
¼ teaspoon salt

Heat oven to 400ยบ. Mix shortening, sugar and eggs thoroughly. Measure flour by sifting. Blend all dry ingredients; stir in. Roll into balls the size of small walnuts. Roll in mixture of 2 Tablespoons sugar and 2 teaspoons cinnamon. Place 2" apart on ungreased baking sheet. Bake 8 to 10 minutes. Makes about 5 dozen 2" cookies
