I've always loved these soft, sweet cookies. Growing up, I remember my mom pulling them out of oven just as I was getting home from school. They are Madalyn's favorite. She requests them all the time... and I'm glad she does because I always forget how delicious they are.
These are the best cookies for kids to help make. My kids LOVE rolling the balls in the cinnamon/sugar.
1 1/2 cups white sugar
1/2 cup butter, softened
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon cream of tartar
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
3 tablespoons white sugar
2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
- Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
- Combine 1 1/2 cups white sugar, butter, vanilla and eggs. Mix well.
- Stir in flour, cream of tartar, baking soda and salt. Blend well. Shape dough into 1 inch balls. Combine 3 tablespoons sugar and 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon. Roll dough in sugar/cinnamon mixture and place 2 inches apart on ungreased baking sheets. Bake 8 to 10 minutes or until set. Immediately remove from cookie sheets.
