Snickerdoodle Cookies

Snickerdoodles are a classic cinnamon sugar cookie, and happen to be one of my husband's favorites.  I have tried several recipes and this is the one that he likes best.  These cookies bake up nice and crispy around the edges and chewy in the center.

SNICKERDOODLE COOKIES

INGREDIENTS
1/2 cup butter, softened
1/2 cup shortening
1 1/2 cups white sugar
2 eggs
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
2 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons cream of tartar
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons white sugar
2 teaspoons ground cinnamon

DIRECTIONS
1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.

2. In a large bowl, cream together the butter, shortening, 1 1/2 cups sugar, eggs, and vanilla.

3. In a small bowl, whisk together the flour, cream of tartar, baking soda, and salt. Add flour mixture to butter mixture and mix until just combined.

4. Mix the 2 tablespoons sugar and 2 teaspoons cinnamon in a small bowl.

5. Shape rounded tablespoonfuls of dough into balls. Roll balls in cinnamon mixture and place 2 inches apart on ungreased baking sheets. Bake for 8 to 10 minutes or until edges are set.  Remove cookies to wire racks to cool.
