  • Preparation Time:



  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons cream of tartar
  • 1-teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 cup butter or margarine, softened (I use butter)
  • 1-1/3 cups plus 1/4 cup sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1-teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons ground cinnamon


  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
  • In a large bowl, stir together flour, cream of tartar, and baking soda.
  • In a separate large bowl, with a mixer at medium speed, beat butter and 1-1/3 cups sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in eggs and vanilla. Reduce speed to low; beat in flour mixture a little at a time, until well blended.
  • In a small bowl, combine cinnamon and remaining 1/4 cup sugar. With your hands, shape dough into 1-inch balls. Roll in cinnamon sugar to coat. Place balls, 1 inch apart, on ungreased large cookie sheet. Bake until set and lightly golden brown and slightly crinkly on top, about 12 minutes.
  • Cool on cookie sheet on wire rack for about 1 minute. With a spatula, transfer to wire rack to cool completely. Repeat with remaining dough.
  • Makes about 54 cookies
