When my son Matt was a teenager, his friend
Paul lived with us - whenever I made a
batch of these cookies, they would have
most of them eaten by the time I finished
baking the last batch and I always doubled
the recipe. They must have liked them!
2 3/4 cup sifted flour
2 tsp. cream of tartar
1 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt
1 cup margarine or butter
1 1/3 cup sugar
1/4 cup cinnamon
1/2 cup sugar
Sift together the first four ingredients and set aside.
Cream margarine or butter
and sugar; add eggs.
Gradually add dry ingredients.
Chill dough for one hour.
Roll into balls, then roll the balls into
the cinnamon sugar mixture.
Place about 2 inches apart on
an ungreased cookie sheet.
Bake at 400 degrees for about 8 minutes
or until lightly browned.
Makes about 60 cookies.
