- Blend dry ingredients into creamed shortening mixture.
- Combine 2 Tbsp sugar and cinnamon in small bowl.
- Roll cookie dough into balls and coat in cinnamon mixture.
- Place balls two inches apart on ungreased cookie sheet and flatten with hand or underside of a glass.

Good but not great. I really liked the texture of the cookie but something seemed a little off about the flavor. While these will definitely be eaten and enjoyed, I think I will find another recipe to use next time I make snickerdoodles.
These are very moist and chewy. The flavor was outstanding. I will be making this recipe again. Thank you for the great recipe.
These cookies were Great. Very easy to make. Thanks for the recipe!!
