Craving something sweet? I can guarentee you wont just have one of these cookies! These soft and chewy cookies are crisp on the outside and have a warm buttery flavor inside rolled in cinnamon and sugar!
Meanwhile sift together the flour, salt, baking soda, and cream of tartar.
MMM MMM MMM!
2 3/4 cup all purpose flour
2 tsp cream of tartar
1 tsp baking soda
1/3 tsp salt
1 tsp vanilla
1 stick on unsalted butter (room tempiture)
1/2 cup pure vegetable shortening
1 3/4 cup sugar
2 tsp ground cinnamon
2 large eggs
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees and place rack in center of oven
Line baking sheets with Silpat baking mats or parchment paper; I prefer to use stoneware. set aside
Sift together flour, cream of tartar, baking soda, and salt; set aside. In the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with a paddle attachment, combine room tempiture butter, shortening, and 1 1/2 cups sugar. Beat on medium speed until light and fluffy, about 2 minutes. Scrape down sides of bowl when needed. Add eggs and vanilla, and beat to combine. Add dry ingredients, and beat to combine. Place in the refrigerate for 10 min before rolling into dough balls.
In a small bowl, combine remaining 1/4 cup sugar and the ground cinnamon. Form balls of the dough about the size of a ping pong or golf ball, and roll in cinnamon sugar. Place about 2 inches apart on the prepared baking sheets. Bake until the cookies are set in center and begin to crack (they will not brown), about 10-12 minutes. With the leftover cinnamon sugar mix sprinkle a desired amount over each cookie. Transfer the sheets to a wire rack or wax paper to cool about 2 minutes before transferring the cookies to the rack. Store in an airtight container up to 1 week.
* If you have leftover cinnamon sugar mix DONT throw it away! Save it and sprikle it on some toast with butter! Who doesnt like cinnamon sugar toast?! brings back childhood memories! mmmm YUM! *
