...is from the venerable 1963 Betty Crocker's Cooky Book.

The only change I make is to use all butter instead of "part butter or margarine". Don't know what that's all about, but it appears in many recipes in this book that call for shortening.

Snickerdoodles

1 cup shortening (part butter or margarine) [I always use ALL Unsalted BUTTER]
1 1/2 cups sugar
2 eggs
2 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
2 tsp. cream of tartar
1 tsp. baking soda
1/4 tsp. salt
2 tbsp. sugar
2 tsp. cinnamon

Heat oven to 400 degrees F. Mix shortening (butter!), 1 1/2 cups sugar, and eggs thoroughly. Blend flour, cream of tartar, baking soda and salt; stir in. Shape dough into 1" balls and roll in mixture of 2 tbsp. cinnamon and 2 tsp. sugar. Place 2" apart on ungreased baking sheet. Bake 8 to 10 minutes. (Do not overbake or these cookies will become hard!) These cookies will puff up at first, then flatten out. Makes 6 dozen cookies.

Betcha can't eat just one!!!!
