Buttery cookie topped with cinnamon sugar.

Makes about 48

1 cup butter or shortening
1-1/2 cups granulated sugar
2 large eggs
2-3/4 cups all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons cream of tartar
1 teaspoons baking soda
cinnamon and sugar mixed to taste (about 1/4 cup sugar to 1/2 tablespoon cinnamon is a good mixture)

Preheat oven to 400F. Mix together butter and sugar until smooth, then add eggs, cream of tartar, and baking soda. Stir in flour until well mixed. Roll into balls about 1" in diameter and roll in cinnamon and sugar to coat. Place on ungreased cookie sheets and bake 8-10 minutes. Cookies are done when they are just barely browning.

  Loving to Bake in North Carolina  Dec 10, 2013
Would make this again.
This is a very good recipe. I will make these again, However, I will add more Cinnamon to the Cinnamon Sugar mixture that the cookies are rolled into before baking. I will probably increase it to 1 tablespoon instead of the 1/2 tablespoon. My husband loved them but wishes they had more Cinnamon taste. Happy Baking.... 5 stars
