1 c butter, softened

1 1/3 c sugar

2 eggs

1 tsp vanilla

3 c flour

1 tsp baking soda

1 tsp cream of tartar

1/4 tsp salt

2 tsp cinnamon

3 tbsp sugar

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Lightly grease 4 cookie sheets. In a large bowl, beat butter and 1 1/3 c sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in eggs and vanilla. In a small bowl, stir together flour, baking soda, cream of tartar, and salt. Gradually add to butter mixture, blending thoroughly. In a small bowl, combine cinnamon with 3 tbsp sugar. Roll dough into 1" balls (may also use a #50 disher) and then roll in cinnamon-sugar until completely coated. Place on baking sheets (16 cookies will fit on a sheet) and bake for 12 minutes. Let cool for 1 minute before transferring cookies to a cooling rack to cool completely. Makes about 4 dozen.
