  • COMBINE 1 1⁄2 cups sugar, shortening, eggs, milk and vanilla in bowl of electric mixer. Beat at medium speed until well blended.
  • COMBINE flour, cream of tartar, baking soda and salt in medium bowl. Add gradually to shortening mixture at low speed. Mix just until blended.
  • COMBINE remaining 1⁄2 cup sugar and cinnamon in small bowl. Shape dough into 1-inch balls. Roll in sugar-cinnamon mixture. Place 2 inches apart on ungreased baking sheets.

  • VARIATION:
  • COLORED SUGAR SNICKERDOODLES: Add 2 teaspoons cinnamon to flour mixture in Step 3. Combine 3 tablespoons colored sugar and 3 tablespoons granulated sugar to use for coating instead of cinnamon-sugar mixture.
  • TIP - Cinnamon-sugar mixture can be put in resealable plastic food storage bag. Place 2 to 3 cookie dough balls at a time in bag. Seal. Shake to sugar-coat dough.
