These are so easy and the best I've ever had. This is my Mother's recipe.


  • 1 Cup shortening (part butter or margarine maybe a quarter of it)
  • 1 1/2 Cups sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 3/4 Cups flour
  • 2 tsp. cream of tartar
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 2T sugar plus 2 tsp cinnamon mixed together


Shape dough into one inch balls. Roll in mixture of 2Tbsp sugar and 2 tsp cinnamon. Place 2 inches apart on baking sheet. Cookies will puff up and then flatten out while baking.
Bake 8-10 minutes @ 400 degrees.
