1 c shortning ( I used butter flavor)
1 1/2 c sugar
then add 2 eggs and 1 t vanilla
Add shifted dry ingredients:
2 3/4 c flour
2 t cream of tarter
1 t soda
1 t salt
May have to add 1 or 2 T milk to keep batter light (I did not, but Grandma's recipe said this). Roll in balls and in a mixture of 2 T sugar and 2 t cinnamon.
Place about 2 inches apart on ungreased cookie sheet. Bake at 400 degrees for 10 min.
Makes about 30 cookies.
