Taken almost word for word from the "Cookies" edition of the Company's Coming cookbook but they were so good I just had to share...hope I don't get sued by Jean Pare LOL
Cream butter and first amount of sugar well. Beat in eggs one at a time. Mix in flour, cream of tartar, baking soda and salt. Shape into 1 inch balls. Stir remaining sugar and cinnamon together in a small dish. Roll balls in mixture to coat. Place on ungreased cookie sheet. Bake in 400 F oven for 7 to 8 minutes. Makes about 4 dozen. Note: If cookie dough is too sticky, up to 1/4 cup flour may be added.
*I used a #60 cookie scoop which makes balls that are approx. 1 inch, and then two forks to roll them in the sugar mixture and place them on a cookie sheet, over which I had placed parchment paper. *I used the extra 1/4 cup flour and found the cookies a little dry…will not use next time!
