While making cookies last week, the kids wanted Chocolate Chip, and I decided to make Snickerdoodles.  I don't remember making Snickerdoodles except once before, though I don't know why.  Maybe it's because I know I would eat too many of them?  Yes, that's probably it!

This is my cousin's recipe.  It was also an entry in the school contest that I mentioned a few days ago. However, this was the 5th grade winner, placing just above that Chocolate Chip recipe!

1 cup shortening
1 1/2 cups sugar
2 eggs
2 3/4 cups flour, sifted
2 teaspoons cream of tartar
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons ground cinnamon (I used more)
2 teaspoons sugar (I used more)

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. In a mixing bowl, combine shortening, 1 1/2 cups sugar, and eggs; mix thoroughly. Sift flour, cream of tartar, soda, and salt; stir into shortening mixture. Mix cinnamon and 2 teaspoons sugar in a shallow dish. Form dough into balls the size of walnuts.  Roll in cinnamon sugar. Place on ungreased cookie sheet about 2' apart. Bake 8 - 10 minutes. Cool before removing from cookie sheet.

I think I'll make these for senior lunch today. Tired of the same old thing!
