Snickerdoodle Cookies
1/2 cup shortening
1/2 cup butter
1 1/2 cups sugar
2 eggs
2 3/4 cups flour
2 teaspoons cream of tarter
1 teaspoon soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons sugar
2 teaspoons cinnamon

Preheat oven to 400 deg.  Mix shortening, butter, 1 1/2 cups sugar and eggs thoroughly.  Blend flour, tarter, soda, and salt.  Stir flour mixture into egg mixture.  Shape into balls about 1 inch in diameter.  Put sugar and cinnamon together in a bowl and roll balls in the sugar mixture.  Place on a cookie sheet.  Bake until the cookies become flat and a light brown.   It takes around 8 minutes to bake.

This makes about 6 dozen cookies.  My daughter is the best little cookie maker in the world.  She 4 times this recipe and we quickly are asking her for more!!
