Important tip: Be sure to use margarine NOT butter! This will keep your cookies soft and chewy.
Hot and fresh from the from the oven…they smell amazing!!
Here’s the recipe:
- 1 cup margarine at room temperature
- 1 and 1/2 cups sugar
- 2 eggs
- 2 and 3/4 cups flour
- 2 teaspoons cream of tartar
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 3 tablespoons sugar
- 3 teaspoons cinnamon
Preheat oven to 400°.
Cream together margarine, sugar, and eggs thoroughly. Sift together flour, cream of tartar, baking soda, and salt. Add to the first mixture and blend thoroughly. Form dough into balls the size of walnuts.
If dough is too sticky, just put it in the refrigerator for a few minutes or sprinkle your hands with water before rolling into balls.
In a small bowl, combine 3 tablespoons sugar and 3 teaspoons cinnamon. Roll each ball in this mixture and place on an ungreased cookie sheet, allowing at least 2 inches between each ball. Bake 8 to 10 minutes.
This recipe makes about 5 dozen cookies so there are plenty for everyone. So good with a cold glass of milk or a hot cup of tea or coffee! And if there are any left, they freeze well.
This is a fun recipe to make with the kids. They will love rolling the dough into little balls and then into the cinnamon/sugar mixture. 😊
