I have been making this recipe my whole life. The recipe is from my mom. Easy to make and they taste great!


1 cup soft shortening—half Crisco half butter
1 ½ c sugar

Mix thoroughly and add(with a mixer)

2 ¾ c flour
2 t cream of tartar
1 t baking soda
¼ t salt

Roll into balls the size of small walnuts.* Roll into mixture of 2 T sugar and 2 t cinnamon. Place 2 inches apart on ungreased baking sheet. Bake at 400 for 8-10 minutes. These puff up at first and then flatten out.
*We used a small ice cream scoop
