Cinnamon-Sugar Cookies

Top Review by Denise in da Kitchen

My husband loves snickerdooles, so I try to make them every year. This is the first time I have ever used a combination of shortening and butter. Although these cookies are easy and taste great, they didn't seem to be as tender or to puff up as much as my old recipe.
