SNICKERDOODLES (for Marcia Geiger )

By mystic

Category: Cookies, Bars, and Candy

Read tips at the bottom first.

1 cup shortening (part butter or margarine)
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

2 TBS sugar
2 tsp cinnamon

Heat oven to 400* (mod. hot). Mix shortening, 1 1/2cups sugar, eggs thoroughly. Measure flour by dipping method or by sifting. Blend flour, cream of tartar, soda and salt: stir in. Shape dough in 1" balls. Roll ball in a dish holding the mixture of 2 TBS sugar and cinnamon. Place 2" apart on ungreased baking sheet. Bake 8-10 minutes. These cookies puff up first,and then flatten down. Makes about 6 doz.

Note: Sift the flour and soda- soda lumps together and is bitter

For holidays: I substitute the appropriate colored sugar for 1/2 of the sugar that is used in the coating
