Treats: Snickerdoodles

The Original Mrs. Fritz sent us home from Thanksgiving with a container filled with some of Mr. Fritz's favorite cookies: Snickerdoodles. He's been enjoying them ever since. I asked her to share her recipe, and here's what she sent along. Thank you, Original Mrs. Fritz!

1/2 cup butter
1/2 cup vegetable shortening
1 1/2 cup sugar, plus 3 Tbs.
2 eggs
1 tsp soda
1/4 tsp. salt
2 tsps. cream of tartar
2 3/4 cups flour
3 tsps. cinnamon

Mix butter, shortening, 1 1/2 cups sugar and eggs. Sift together and add the flour, soda, cream of tartar and salt. Roll into size of walnuts. Roll in mixture of 3 Tbs sugar and cinnamon. Bake at 400 degrees 8 to 10 min. Makes about 4 dozen 2" cookies.
