Yes, I know. Snickerdoodles are easy and everyone knows how to make them. But they're good! This recipe is for Mitzi, in case you needed your grandmother's cookies from time to time. And for the lone person among the readers who may have never eaten snickerdoodles, they're a soft, chewy, sugar cookie laced with cinnamon.
1 cup shortening (Egads!)
1 and 1/2 cups sugar
2 tsp. cream of tartar
1 tsp. baking soda
1/2 - 1 tsp. salt
2 and 3/4 cups flour
Mix together 4 tablespoons sugar and 2 tsp. cinnamon in a small bowl and set aside.
Cream shortening and sugar. Add remaining ingredients and mix just until combined. Roll into balls, and roll the balls in the cinnamon-sugar mixture. Bake until lightly brown but soft in a 400-degree oven, about 8-10 minutes.
