1 cup softened butter
1 1/2 cups sugar
Cream the butter and sugar until smooth.
1 teaspoon vanilla
3 cups flour
1 teaspoon cream of tartar
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
Once the batter is smooth, shape the dough into balls that are 1 inch in diameter.
2 tablespoons sugar
2 teaspoons cinnamon
Roll the balls of dough in the cinnamon-sugar mixture. Place on an ungreased baking sheet.
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.
Bake for 8-10 minutes, just until the outer edges are starting to look a little darker than the rest of the cookie.
Let them sit on the baking sheet for about 2 minutes.
Remove them to a paper towel to finish cooling.
Makes about 36-40 cookies, if you can keep from eating the dough... 😉
