This weeks cookie always remind me of Christmas. Something simple and yummy. I happen to know that Santa loves these cookies! They are easy to make and the kids can help roll the dough in the cinnamon/sugar mix. An easy tradition to start.
1 Cup butter, softened
1 1/2 Cup sugar
2 1/2 Cup flour
1/2 tsp. salt
1 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. cream of tartar
cinnamon and sugar mixed in a bowl
Cream shortening and sugar. Beat in eggs. Sift dry ingredients together and add to creamed mixture; stir. Refrigerate for 1 hour. Roll dough into walnut sized balls and roll in the cinnamon/sugar mixture. Place on ungreased cookie sheet and bake at 400 degrees for 10 minutes. Cool on wire rack. Makes about 4 dozen cookies.
