For the past six years, I (and now "the boys") spend countless hours in the kitchen baking cookies the month prior to Christmas. We sample a few of each recipe and put the remainder in the freezer. Closer to Christmas we love giving our goodies to our friends and family. I love testing out new recipes, but we remain "faithful" to a few of our favorite cookies each year. Snickerdoodles definitely fall into our faithful category. Frankly, I do not recall where I got this recipe is a winner, though!

1 cup shortening
1 1/2 cup sugar
2 eggs
2 3/4 cup flour
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
2 tbsp sugar
2 tsp cinnamon

Mix shortening, sugar, and egg till creamy. Sift flour, baking powder, and salt together. Add to creamed mixture and chill dough 1 hour. Roll dough into balls, place on wax paper, and sprinkle with cinnamon and sugar. Bake on ungreased cookie sheet at 400 degrees for 8-10 minutes. Enjoy!
