1 c shortening
1 1/2 c sugar
2 3/4 c flour
2 tsp cream of tartar
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
3 Tbs sugar
3 Tbs cinnamon
Preheat your oven to 400º and line cookie sheets with parchment or baking mats. In the bowl of your stand mixer cream together the shortening, sugar and eggs. Sift together the flour, cream of tartar, baking soda and salt. Stir in the flour mixture until the dough comes together. In a small bowl mix together the 3 Tbs of cinnamon and sugar and scoop the dough into 1 Tbs balls, roll in the cinnamon sugar and bake for 9-11 minutes. I liked them better with less cook time, but if you like crisp go 10-11 minutes. Remove carefully from the oven and cool on wire racks, serve.

These look delicious!
These look so good. I came across a snickerdoodle recipe in my Better Homes and Gardens cookbook yesterday and thought to myself “I need to make those one day.” Your recipe is definitely inspiring me to make them. Thanks for sharing on Marvelous Mondays!
I adore snickerdoodles! I made pumpkin snickerdoodles in the fall and they were SO good! 🙂
