It's cookie baking time again! I actually enjoy baking all the time, but I tend to do it more this time of year. Who doesn't love homemade cookies? I know my family sure does and Snickerdoodles are my hubby's favorite!

1/2 cup butter
1/2 cup shortening
1 1/2 cups sugar
2 eggs
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
2 3/4 cups all purpose flour
2 teaspoons cream of tartar
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt

~sugar and cinnamon to roll the cookies in (I don't really measure this. I just pour some sugar in a bowl and mix in the cinnamon until it looks good.)

Preheat your oven to 400 degrees. Cream together the butter, shortening, and sugar. Add the eggs and vanilla. In another bowl combine flour, cream of tartar, baking soda, and salt. Slowly add the dry ingredients to the wet and mix until combined. Scoop rounded teaspoons of dough and roll them into a ball. Roll the balls of dough in the cinnamon and sugar mixture and place them a few inches apart on a baking sheet. Bake for 8-10 minutes. Enjoy!
