  • 1 cup margarine
  • 1 cup vegetable shortening, such as Crisco®
  • 3 cups sugar
  • 4 eggs
  • 5-1/2 cups flour
  • 4 tsp. cream of tartar
  • 2 tsp. baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 4 T. sugar
  • 4 tsp. cinnamon

Preparation -
Cream together the margarine, Crisco®, sugar and eggs. Mix all the dry ingredients together in a separate bowl. Add the dry ingredients to the creamed mixture and mix well to form a soft cookie dough; set aside. In a small bowl combine 4 T. sugar and 4 tsp. cinnamon; mix well. Form small amounts of cookie dough into 1" to 1-1/2" round balls. Roll each ball of dough in the cinnamon-sugar mixture. Place the coated balls of dough, about 3 inches apart, on ungreased cookie sheets. Bake in a preheated oven at 400º for 8 to 10 minutes. Cool the baked cookies completely before storing in an airtight container.
