Snickerdoodles


The snickerdoodle is my mom's favorite cookie so when she asked me to make her some when I wanted to take something with us when we went and saw my sister, I made a double batch. This is from the Betty Crocker Wedding Cookbook.

1 stick butter or margarine, softened
1 1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup shortening
2 large eggs
2 3/4 flour
2 tsp cream of tartar
1 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 cup sugar
2 tsp cinammon

Cream together butter, sugar, shortening and eggs in large bowl. Stir in flour, cream of tartar, baking soda, and salt. Roll dough into 1 1/4 inch balls. Stir together the sugar and cinammon. Roll balls into sugar mixture. Place on cookie sheet with parchmant paper. Bake on 400 for 8-10 minutes until set.
