Classic Snickerdoodles
Ingredients
  • 1  cup  butter, softened
  • 1 1/2  cups  sugar
  • 1  teaspoon  baking soda
  • 1  teaspoon  cream of tartar
  • 1/4  teaspoon  salt
  • 2  eggs
  • 1  teaspoon  vanilla
  • 3  cups  all-purpose flour
  • 1/4  cup  sugar
  • 2  teaspoons  ground cinnamon
Directions

1. In a large mixing bowl beat butter with an electric mixer on medium to high speed for 30 seconds. Add 1-1/2 cups sugar, baking soda, cream of tartar, and salt. Beat until combined, scraping sides of bowl occasionally. Beat in eggs and vanilla until combined. Beat in as much of the flour as you can with the mixer. Using a wooden spoon, stir in any remaining flour. Cover and chill dough about 1 hour or until easy to handle.

2. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. In a small bowl combine 1/4 cup sugar and cinnamon. Shape dough into 1-1/4-inch balls. Roll balls in cinnamon-sugar mixture to coat. Place 2 inches apart on an ungreased cookie sheet.

3. Bake for 10 to 12 minutes or until bottoms are light brown. Transfer cookies to a wire rack; cool.
