Today was a baking day… I made these Snickerdoodles!

The recipe is one that my Momma has used for as long as I can remember. It was obtained from a cook book, which she received as a wedding gift in 1966.


1 cup soft shortening (part butter)

1 1/2 cups sugar

2 eggs

2 3/4 cups GOLD MEDAL Flour

2 tsp cream of tartar

1 tsp. soda

1 tsp. salt

Heat oven to 400 degrees (mod. hot). Mix shortening, sugar and eggs thoroughly. Measure flour by dip-level-pour method or by sifting. Blend all dry ingredients; stir in. Roll into balls the size of walnuts. Roll mixture of 2 tbsp. sugar and 2 tsp. cinnamon. Place 2″ apart on un-greased baking sheet. Bake 8 – 10 min. (These cookies puff up at first, then flatten out.) Makes 5 doz. 2″ cookies
