I can smell them right now.
WARNING!! These cookies are addictive.
yields: 7 dozen
1 ½ C. butter (3 cubes)
3 C. sugar
4 tsp. cream of tartar
2 tsp. baking soda
4 ½ C. flour
1 tsp. salt
4 tsp. ground cinnamon
6 tbsp. sugar
Mix butter, eggs, and sugar together until well blended.
Sift together cream of tartar, baking soda, flour, and salt. Add to butter mixture.
Roll into one inch balls and then roll in cinnamon & sugar mixture. Flatten half way down with bottom of cup.
Bake at 350 degrees for 13-16 minutes.
NOTE: to make it easier and get uniform size cookies, I use the small stainless steel Pampered Chef scoop. Definitely use REAL butter for the best taste.
These freeze well. And they also travel nicely in hubby's lunchbox.
I just handed this small plate of cookies to Danny. Little does he know that if he eats them, he has agreed to watch an episode of 24 with me tonight. muhaha.
