Snickerdoodles

This is the "blonde" version of "Chocolate Crinkle" cookies. When I was a little girl and baked cookies at home, these were my brother David's favorite cookies.

1 c. shortening
1 1/2 cup sugar
2 eggs
2 3/4 cups flour
2 tsp cream of tartar
1 tsp soda
1/4 tsp salt
2 Tbs. sugar
2 Tbs. cinnamon

Mix shortening, sugar & eggs thoroughly. Measure flour and sift. Blend flour, cream of tartar,soda & salt and mix into shortening mixture. Shape dough into 1 inch balls. Roll the balls in cinnamon/sugar mixture. Place 2 inches apart on ungreased baking shhet. Bake 8 to 10 minutes in a 400 degree oven. Makes about 6 dozen cookies.
