Hee is a recipe for snickerdoodles which I have used for years. Not recently however as I live alone and I do not need cookies even though I love them!! LOL
1 cup shortening
1 1/2 cups white sugar
Cream shortening and sugar together.
Add two eggs which have been lightly beaten.
2 3/4 cups flour
1 tsp soda
2 tsp cream of tartar
1/2 tsp salt My recipe said to sift all of the dry ingred together but I never did so that is optional. I just did not like to bother and after the first time of sifting I could not see where it made any difference. With the flour now I don't think it is as important.
Mix well and chill dough in frig for a few hours. Roll into balls about the size of a small walnut. Roll in-
2 tbl sugar
2 tbl cinnamon
Which has been mixed.
Place on ungreased cookie sheet about 2 inches aprt and bake at 400 degrees for 8-10 minutes or until lightly browned. This makes approx 5 dozen 2 inch cookies.
There may be some better recipes out there but I always liked this one. Good luck. Marian in ND Let me know when the cookies are done and I will be over for a taste and a cup of coffee.
