237. Snickerdoodles...are they not the quintessential cookie? Perfectly round, chewy, crunchy, soft and delicate all wrapped up in one simple sweet bite.

2 Tablespoons sugar
1 Tablespoon cinnamon
1/2 cup shortening
1/2 cup butter, softened to room temperature
1 1/2 cup sugar
2 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 3/4 cups flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons cream of tartar

Combine the small amount of sugar and cinnamon in a small bowl and set aside.
Cream shortening and butter together. Gradually add 1 1/2 cup sugar, beating 3 minutes. Add eggs one at a time; beat well. Blend in vanilla.
Add flour, soda, salt and cream of tartar into mixing bowl. Mix till all comes together into a soft dough.
Shape dough into 1-inch round balls and roll in the sugar/cinnamon mix.
Place on a parchment lined cookie sheet 2 inches apart. (Cookies will spread while baking). Bake at 400º for 6 to 10 minutes or till lightly browned.
Cool. 4 dozen yield
The perfect specimen of deliciousness!
