Ok so here is the deal. I think when you start a food blog that you keep making recipes and all the other recipes get pushed to the back of the blog. So I have decided to post the first recipe I blogged about. These are the BEST cookies ever. My mom has the same recipe and I also saw the recipe off of allrecipes. I don't think you can make a snickerdoodle to many ways. You either use all butter, all shortening or half and half. These cookies are literally the best cookies though. Love them!
1/2 cup butter, softened
1/2 cup shortening
1 1/2 cups white sugar
2 eggs
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
2 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons cream of tartar
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons white sugar
2 teaspoons ground cinnamon

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
Cream together butter, shortening, 1 1/2 cups sugar, the eggs and the vanilla. Blend in the flour, cream of tartar, soda and salt. Shape dough by rounded spoonfuls into balls.
Mix the 2 tablespoons sugar and the cinnamon. Roll balls of dough in mixture. Place 2 inches apart on ungreased baking sheets.
Bake 8 to 10 minutes, or until set but not too hard. Remove immediately from baking sheets.
The Results:
Only change one thing about this recipe and that is ONLY bake your cookies for 7 minutes. 7 1/2 minutes at the most. My cookies look like they aren't done but after I let them sit for about an hour they settle to PERFECTION.

My 4 year old asks me to make them as soon as the next batch is gone. I have to be careful though because I could eat them all myself.
