Cinnamon-y, sugary, cream of tartar-y yumminess. Recipe after the jump.
Prep Time: 15 minutes
Total Time: 35 minutes
Yield: 15 cookies
1.5 c flour
1 tsp cream of tartar
0.5 tsp baking soda
0.5 tsp salt
4 tbsp butter, room temperature
0.25 c shortening
0.75 c plus 3 tbsp sugar, divided
1.5 tbsp cinnamon
(1) Preheat oven to 375 degrees
(2) Sift together the flour, cream of tartar, baking soda, and salt
(6) In a small bowl, mix together cinnamon and the remaining sugar
Notes: Since this recipe doesn't use brown sugar, you need to add the cream of tartar to activate the baking soda. It also gives the cookies their distinctive taste. So, while you can substitute vinegar for cream of tartar when whipping egg whites, I wouldn't do so for this recipe. As always, store with a slice of bread to keep them soft.
