Simple Snicker Doodles

December is a month crammed with special programs and parties where we typically need to bring a couple dozen treats to share.  I have fell back on this cinnamon cookie recipe a lot during the past few years.  It's a great alternative to frosted sugar cookies and the always popular chocolate chip. 

They go together fairly fast and easy-   that makes it a win win for me!  I doubled the batch and froze some of the sugared dough balls for later.  I will take them out of the freezer and bake when I need them.

Here is what you will need to whip up a batch of these crisp cookies:
  • 1 cup softened shortening
  • 1 1/2 cups sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
  • 2 3/4 cups flour
  • 2 tsp. cream of tartar
  • 1 tsp. baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 3 T. cinnamon
  • 1 1/2 T. sugar

Here is what you do:
  • Mix shortening, sugar, vanilla, and eggs together.
  • Sift flour, cream of tartar, soda, and salt.
  • Slowly add the dry ingredients with the mixed.
  • Chill the dough.
  • When ready to bake, roll the dough into small balls.
  • Roll the dough balls into a cinnamon and sugar mixture.  I use about 3 tablespoons of sugar to 1 tablespoon of cinnamon.
  • Bake on an ungreased cookie sheet at 350 degrees for 8-10 minutes.  You may need to watch them.  Occasionally, I have had to let them cook a little longer or shorter.  It depends on your oven.
  • Enjoy!
