These are a family favorite. I remember neighbors who had moved to the Midwest from California that LOVED these cookies. They'd never heard of them before.


1 Cup shortening, room temperature
(I like to use 1 stick butter and 1 stick margarine)
1 1/2 Cups sugar
2 Eggs

In another bowl, mix together and then add to above mixture:

2 3/4 Cups flour
2 teaspoons cream of tartar
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt

After mixing dough well, roll into balls about the size of a walnut. Dip each into a mixture of 2 Tablespoons sugar and 2 Tablespoons of cinnamon.

Bake on ungreased cookie sheet for 8-10 minutes at 400 degrees.
