  • 1 cup unsalted butter, softened
  • 1 1/2 cups granulated sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 2 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoon cream of tartar
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 Tablespoon cinnamon


  • In a medium-size bowl whisk together the flour, cream of tartar, baking soda, and salt together. Set aside. 
  • In a large mixing bowl cream together the sugar and butter until light and fluffy, about 3-5 minutes. Add the eggs one at a time and mix well. Add the vanilla and blend well.
  • Add dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and mix well. Chill for at least 1 hour.
  • Preheat the oven to 350F degrees.
  • Mix the sugar and cinnamon together in a small bowl. Shape the dough into 1-inch balls and roll in the cinnamon-sugar mixture to coat evenly. Place 2 inches apart on a parchment-lined baking sheet.
  • Bake for 12-14 minutes, until golden.  Rotate the pan in the oven halfway through the baking time, if needed.
  • Allow the cookies to cool for 3-4 minutes on the baking sheet. Then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.
