Snickerdoodles are a perennial favorite and Christmas wouldn’t be quite as Christmasy without these cinnamon treats.
Heat oven to 400°.
Cream together Crisco and sugar.
Add eggs, one at a time, beating after each addition.
Sift flour, cream of tartar, baking soda, and salt, then stir into creamed mixture.
Chill for several hours.
Roll into small balls.
In a small bowl, combine cinnamon and sugar. Roll balls in mixture. Place about 2 inches apart on ungreased cookie sheets.
Bake at 400° 8-10 minutes, until light brown. I like to bang the tray on the oven rack about 6-7 minutes into baking. It deflates the cookie and I get a crisper cookie, which I prefer.
Let cool on sheets for a few minutes then place on racks to cool completely.
