These just might be my favorite cookie of all time.


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


Cream together butter, shortening, 1 1/2 cups sugar, eggs, and vanilla. Blend in flour, cream of tartar, baking soda, and salt. Shape by rounded teaspoonful into balls. Mix together remaining sugar and cinnamon. Drop balls of dough into cinnamon mixture and roll until coated. Place cookies on ungreased cookie sheets and bake at 400 degrees for 8-10 minutes.
