From the Cookie Jar ~ Snickerdoodles

1 cup butter
1 1/2 cups white sugar
2 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
2 teaspoons cream of tartar
1/2 teaspoon salt
4 tablespoons white sugar
4 teaspoons ground cinnamon

1. Preheat oven to 375F.
2. In a mixing bowl, cream the butter and sugar together. Add eggs and vanilla.
3. In a separate bowl, combine flour, baking soda, cream of tartar, and salt. Add to the creamed mixture and blend well.
4. In a small bowl, stir together the 4 tablespoons of sugar, and the cinnamon. Roll dough into walnut sized balls, then roll in the cinnamon sugar. Place cookies on lightly greased cookie sheet, two inches apart. Flatten slightly with bottom of glass.
5. Bake for 6-8 minutes. Edges should be slightly brown. Cool on wire rack.
Note: I must have made my cookies bigger because I baked them for 12 minutes. I did not flatten before baking and they came out a perfect shape.
original recipe found at Kelli's place.

These have to be one of my favorite types of cookies, mostly because of their fun name!
Thanks for your sweet note on my blog. I hope to catch up there soon, now that school is over and I have a little more time on my hands. Have a wonderful day!
