This is another variation of a wonderful cinnamony cookie! I use 1/2 cup butter and 1/2 cup shortening which I took from a recipe in a newspaper 20+ years ago.

The other part "From Amish and Memonnite Kitchens" a favorite cookbook of mine.

How to Make Snicker Doodles (Another variation)

Step-by-Step

  1. When ready to bake preheat oven to 400 degree
    I cut numerous sheets of parchment paper to cover my 3 cookie sheets so I don't have to wash in between baking.
  2. Cream shortening and sugar. Add eggs and beat well
  3. Sift together - flour, cream of tartar, baking soda and salt.
  4. Gradually stir into creamed mixture
  5. CHILL DOUGH FOR 2 HOURS OR MORE ( makes it so much easier to handle). Can chill for up to 5 days
  6. Form into balls the size of walnuts. Use 1 teaspoon for bite size, or 1/2 tablespoor for medium size.
  7. Combine 2 TBLS sugar and 2 tsp cinnamon into a gallon baggie. Using this drop in balls and shake to coat well. ( I usually make too much cinnamon/sugar so I store the left overs in the freezer. Don't know if this is "proper" but it works for me.
  8. Bake at 400 degree for 10 minutes. Watch so they don't burn. They should be light brown.
  9. I cool mine on the cookie sheets (covered with parchment paper) so they get crunchy
