This recipe has been passed down from my grandmother to my mother to me. It is a tradition to make these cookies every Christmas. Everyone love these cookies, my mother made me promise before she passed away that I would continue to make these cookies for everyone that works with me and my handicapped brother. And of course for my family. I average over 500 to almost a 1000 cookies each year. Hope you enjoy them.

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  2. Mix together the cup of shortening, 1 1/2 cups sugar and 2 eggs.
  3. Stiff together the flour, cream of tartar, baking soda and salt. All dry ingredients must be leveled out. Mix together the dry ingredients with the egg and shortening and sugar. Set aside.
  4. For the cinnamon and sugar mixture, use 2 tablespoon of sugar and 2 teaspoons of cinnamon. Mix well.
    Roll the cookie dough into balls the size of a small walnut then roll them in the mixture of sugar and cinnamon. Place 2 inches apart on ungreased cookie sheets and bake for 8 to 10 minutes. This will depend on how hard you want the cookies. If you want them crisper bake for 10 minutes, softer cookies, 8 minutes. Let cool on cookie rack.
