These were so yummy. I did make a few minor changes. I used 1/2 cup butter and 1/2 cup of margarine in place of the shortening because that’s what I had, I would have preferred to use a whole cup of butter, but they were still good. I also substituted 2 tsp of vinegar for the 2 tsp of cream of tartar because I couldn’t find my cream of tartar. I also needed way more than 2 tbsp of sugar and cinnamon. I recommend probably tripling that amount.

INGREDIENTS

  • 1 cup shortening
  • 1 1/2 cups white sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 2 teaspoons cream of tartar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons white sugar
  • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon

DIRECTIONS

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
  2. In a medium bowl, cream together the shortening and 1 1/2 cups sugar. Stir in the eggs. Sift together the flour, baking soda, cream of tartar, and salt; stir into the creamed mixture until well blended. In a small bowl, stir together the 2 tablespoons of sugar, and the cinnamon. Roll dough into walnut sized balls, then roll the balls in the cinnamon-sugar. Place them onto an unprepared cookie sheet, two inches apart.
  3. Bake for 8 to 10 minutes in the preheated oven. Edges should be slightly brown. Remove from sheets to cool on wire racks.
