12 Days of Cookies - day 8

I think this is my husband's all-time favorite cookie... if he has a favorite anything. They're definitely a change from the same-old-same-old cookies that you get this time of year. Give it a try!

1 cup butter, softened
1 1/2 cups white sugar
2 eggs
1 tsp vanilla
2 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
2 teaspoons cream of tartar
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons white sugar
2 teaspoons ground cinnamon

Cream butter and sugar together, add eggs and vanilla, mix well. Sift together flour, soda, salt and cream of tartar and mix with liquids.

Mix the 2 tbsp sugar and cinnamon together in a small bowl. Form dough into 1-inch balls and
roll in the cinnamon-sugar mixture. Place on a greased cookie sheet and bake at 400 for 8-10 minutes or until set and edges are golden. Immediately remove from cookie sheet.
