1/2 C. shortening
1/2 C. butter
1 1/2 C. sugar
2 eggs
2 tsp. cream of tartar
1 tsp. baking soda
1/4 tsp. salt
2 3/4 C. flour
Sugar and Cinnamon Mix
2 Tbs. sugar
1-2 tsp. sugar

1. Mix shortening, butter, and sugar together thoroughly until light and fluffy.
2. Add eggs and mix well.
3. Sift together dry ingredients and add to shortening and sugar mixture.
4. Roll into balls the size of small walnuts.
5. Roll balls in sugar and cinnamon mix.
6. Place on baking sheets and bake at 400 degrees for 8-10 minutes.

Notes: For a tasty, "healthier" variation, try substituting half of the flour with wheat flour. It adds a nice nutty flavor.
