These classic cookies are both easy to make and fun to eat because they offer a little "crunch" on the outside, but are soft on the inside. Serve with a glass of milk and they are the perfect sweet treat and will beat a store-bought cookie any day!
½ cup butter
1 ½ cups all-purpose flour
1 cup sugar
½ teaspoon vanilla
¼ teaspoon baking soda
¼ teaspoon cream of tarter
Cinnamon and Sugar mixture (approx 2-3 Tbls sugar and 1 teaspoon cinnamon)
Beat butter until smooth. Add half the flour and the rest of the ingredients (except cinnamon/sugar mixture). Beat until thoroughly combined. Add rest of flour and beat until thoroughly combined. Cover and chill for 1 hour. Shape into balls and roll in cinnamon/sugar mixture. Place on ungreased cookie sheet. Bake at 375 for 10-12 minutes (until just barely the edges are turning brown). Cool on wire rack. Makes approximately 2 1/2 dozen -- very easy to double. Store in sealed container.
