Grandma D's Famous Snickerdoodles

Recipe by Ms. Baker
READY IN: 35mins




  • Heat oven to 400°F.
  • Mix together butter, shortening, 1 1/2 cups sugar and eggs.
  • Blend in flour, cream of tarter, baking soda and salt.
  • Shape the dough by rounded teaspoonfuls into balls (I make the balls larger than that. The bigger the ball, the bigger your cookie.)
  • Mix the 2 teaspoons sugar and the 2 teaspoons cinnamon together.
  • Roll the balls in the sugar/cinnamon mixture.
  • Place the balls 2-3 inches apart (depending on size) on an ungreased baking sheet.
  • Bake 8-10 minutes or until cookies are set.
  • Immediately remove from the baking sheet.
