      The good news: these are delicious and easy to make. The cookies remind me very much of a Mexican version of snickerdoodles especially with the "crackling" effect on top. The bad news: the directions are not clear or concise. By stirring all ingredients together at once just doesn't work. My changes: shortening, egg and sugar were blended with a mixer. Flour and leavening, etc. were sifted then added to the wet ingredients. I found it easier to roll the cookies in the sugar/cinnamon mix before baking. Also, I substituted raw sugar and unrefined cane sugar for granulated to roll the cookies in. Lastly, and possible most importantly, how long to bake the cookies? That is very important information which was not indicated. I ended up baking the cookies for a total of 10 minutes and that seemed to be the perfect amount of time with my range. I don't like to give star ratings below 4, a comment will suffice and I'll leave it at that. Reviewed for ZWT 2009.

      These are good cookies, not to sweet, just right. I'm sure they would go really well with coffee as a mid morning snack or for an afternoon tea. I did change the recipe slightly. I added about 2 1/2 cups of flour, and I didn't have cream of tartar so I left that out. I also put my oven at 375F because with my oven it was too hot at 400. Thank you for sharing your mom's cookie recipe! Made for ZWT5.
