Snickerdoodle Cookies

These cookies are a family favorite. My Sweetie and I enjoy a cup of tea in the evening while we are sharing the events of our day. What better compliment to a cup of tea and good company than an old fashioned cookie like snickerdoodles. Don't forget to sign up for my give away. There is still time. To qualify you must be a follower and post at least one comment on the current page.

1 ½ cups of sugar
½ cup butter softened
½ cup Crisco shortening
2 eggs
2 ¾ cups flour
2 tsp cream of tarter
1 tsp baking soda
¼ tsp salt
2 tsp cinnamon
Cinnamon sugar mix (mix ½ cup sugar and 1 tsp of cinnamon)
Heat oven to 400. Mix dry ingredients in a Ziploc bag or bowl. Mix sugar, butter, shortening and eggs. Add dry ingredients. Do not use mixer or the dough will be over mixed. Shape dough into rounded cookie sized dough balls. Press cookie ball into cinnamon sugar mix and place on baking pan. Bake 8-10 minutes. Remove cookies from cookie sheet quickly, you don’t want to overcook them.
