I have gotten behind on my Sunday cookies! Both here on the blog, and at work. At least for here better late than never. Work is just going to have to deal, as with my parents coming out, they are not getting cookies anytime soon.

These are a family favorite, as Gramps cannot have Chocolate, my mom would make these all the time. A wonderful use for cream of tartar and a good solid cookie.


1/2 cup butter
1/2 cup shortening
1 1/2 cup sugar
2 eggs
2 1/2 - 2 3/4 cups flour
2 teaspoons Cream of Tartar
1 teaspoon Baking Soda
1/4 teaspoon salt

+ Cinnamon Sugar to coat

Prep Time: 15 minutes
Cook Time: 8-10 minutes per batch

Pre Heat Oven to 400 Degrees

Follow the cookie pattern: cream butter, shortening and sugar until well mixed. Beat in the two eggs, keep mixing until well blended.

In a separate bowl mix together the dry ingredients (Flour, CoT, Baking Soda, Salt). Slowly add to sugar mixture. Keep folding/mixing until well mixed and soft looking.

Pour cinnamon sugar on to a plate. Take spoon full of dough, roll in to ball and then roll around in the sugar, getting it well coated. Place on ungreased nonstick cookie sheet.

Bake for 8-10 minutes at 400 degrees. You want the bottoms to be brown, but the tops to be light. Remove from pan, let cool.

Wish you were here Gramps!
Cookies can not really get too much easier. Enjoy!
