Ingredients
  • 1/2 cup salted butter, softened
  • 1/2 cup shortening
  • 1 1/2 cups granulated sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 tsp cream of tartar
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 2 T granulated sugar
  • 2 tsp ground cinnamon
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or silicone mat.

  2. Mix butter, shortening, 1 1/2 cups sugar, eggs, and vanilla in a large bowl until creamy. Add flour, cream of tartar, baking soda, salt, and 1/2 tsp cinnamon; mix until thoroughly combined.

  3. Mix 2 T sugar and 2 tsp cinnamon together in a small bowl. Use a medium cookie scoop to form dough into balls. Roll dough in cinnamon sugar mixture and place 2 inches apart on baking sheet.
