  Makes about 5 dozen 2-inch cookies
Fun to say, to sniff, to eat! Pat Roth of our staff said, "It's one of my happy childhood memories. My mother would be baking when we came home from school and we would have Snickerdoodles hot out of the oven with a glass of milk."
1 cup soft shortening
1 1/2 cups sugar
2 eggs
2 3/4 cups sifted Gold Medal flour
2 teaspoons cream of tartar
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons sugar
2 teaspoons cinnamon
Mix the shortening, sugar and eggs together thoroughly. Sift the flour, cream of tartar, soda and salt together and stir in. Chill dough. Roll into balls the size of small walnuts. Roll in mixture of 2 tablespoons sugar and the 2 teaspoons of cinnamon. Place about 2 inches apart on ungreased baking sheet. Bake until lightly browned…but still soft. (These cookies puff up at first…then flatten out with crinkled tops.)

I could not find this recipe in any of my cookbooks. Not even Fannie Farmer! Anyway, the cookies turned out just like Grandmas.
I baked the cookies in a 350 degree oven, although the recipe did not suggest a temperature.
