Snickerdoodles

This is the Betty Crocker recipe of Snickerdoodles, it is one of my families Christmas tradition cookies, and I have had lots of compliments on it.

1/2 cup Butter softened
1/2 cup shortening
1 1/2 cup sugar
2 eggs
2 1/4 cup flour
2 tsp. cream of tartar
1 tsp. soda
1/4 tsp. salt

Heat oven to 400 degrees. Cream the first four ingredients together. Add the rest and mix. Roll into smallish balls and roll in 2 Tablespoons sugar and 2 Tablespoons Cinnamon mixed together. Place 2 inches apart on ungreased baking sheet. Bake 8-10 minutes, or until set.

A little hint on cookie baking, you might already know this. To keep them softer and not so crunchy, take them out at the lesser time (8 min), they will continue to cook a bit on the warm pan. If they are still harder than you like, take them out even earlier. Wait about 10 minutes for them to cool down and set before removing them from the pan.
