Snickerdoodle Cookies

I know there is a million snickerdoodle recipes out there. This one has been my favorite ever since I was a little girl. I have tried and tried recipes off of Pinterest, blogs, and website and I tend to always go back to this recipe! I think they are absolutely delicious!

Snickerdoodle Cookies

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

5 Tablespoons granulated sugar
2 teaspoons cinnamon

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Combine shortening, sugar and eggs and mix. Add remaining ingredients (in the upper section) and mix until combined. Take the remaining sugar and cinnamon and put in a separate bowl. Shape a heaping Tablespoon of dough and form into a ball. Roll into the cinnamon sugar mix and place on a sprayed cookie sheet. Cook for 8 minutes or until shine is barely off of cookies. Do not overcook these! These are best when they are soft and chewy!
