For Alison and Desiree.
1 ½ cups sugar
1 cup softened butter
1 tsp vanilla
2 tsp cream of tartar
2 ¾ cups all-purpose flour
1 tsp baking soda
¼ tsp salt
2 tsp cinnamon
¼ cups cinnamon sugar
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.
Cream together the butter and sugar, then beat in the eggs and vanilla.
Whisk together the cream of tartar, flour, baking soda and salt and cinnamon, and mix into the butter mixture. If you used a mixer for the butter, switch now to a wooden spoon.
Shape dough into teaspoon-size balls. Roll in cinnamon sugar.
Arrange 2 inches apart on an ungreased baking sheet.
Bake in the center of the oven for 8-10 minutes, or until the edges are golden.
