Softy and Chewy Snickerdoodles

I'm picky when it comes to cookies. They have to be plump, chewy, and moist. I remember in college, I really went through a cookie slump. I don't know what it was, I couldn't make cookies to save my life. Plus, I always left the oven on afterward on accident. I was a great roommate.

Since then, I've worked really hard to find EXCELLENT cookie recipes. Especially for the classics, like snickerdoodles. I have to say, this is pretty darn near perfect. I love it. Save this for your classics. 



1 c. shortening
1 1/2 c. sugar
2 eggs
2  3/4 c. flour
1 tsp. baking soda
1 1/2 tsp. cream of tartar
1/2 tsp. salt
3 T. Sugar & 2 tsp. cinnamon, combined

In a large mixing bowl, beat shortening, sugar and eggs until light and creamy. In a separate bowl sift together flour, baking soda, cream of tartar and salt. Combine with creamy mixture. Roll dough into large marble sized balls and roll into cinnamon/sugar mixture. Bake at 400 degrees for 8-10 minutes.
