A great vintage cookie whose origins have been lost. These are so light and delicate.
Almost a sugar cookie, but the cinnamon and cream of tartar and gives this a unique flavor and texture.
This is a family favorite that's always on the holiday cookie list.
1/2 cup sugar
2+3/4 cups flour
2tsp. cream of tartar
1tsp. baking soda
Also a mixture of 2tbl. sugar and 2tsp. cinnamon for rolling the dough in.
Heat oven to 350*
Whisk all dry ingredients together set aside.
In another bowl beat butter and shortening. Add eggs, beat.
Add dry ingredients a little at a time, beating after each addition.
