This is another cookie that brings back some good childhood memories for me.
My mom used to make these for us as kids.
I remember helping her roll the dough in the cinnamon/sugar mixture, watching them cook in the oven, then eating one warm off of the pan.
Now I do the same with my kids.
A glass of cold milk goes really well with these yummy cookies.


-1 cup butter (2 sticks), softened
-1 cup sugar
-2/3 cup brown sugar
-2 eggs
-1 teaspoon vanilla
-3 cups of flour
-1/2 teaspoon salt
-1 teaspoon baking soda
-1/2 teaspoon cream of tarter

-4 Tablespoon sugar
-2 teaspoon cinnamon

How to Make:
1. In a large bowl, cream together the butter and sugars with an electric mixer on high speed. Add eggs and vanilla and beat until smooth.
2. In another bowl, combine the flour, salt, baking soda and cream of tarter.
3. Sift and pour the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients and mix well.
4. Preheat oven to 300 degrees while you let the dough rest for 30-60 minutes in the refrigerator.
5. In a small bowl combine the sugar with the cinnamon for the topping.
6. Take about 2 1/2 tablespoons of dough and roll in into a ball. Roll this dough in the cinnamon/sugar mixture and press slightly down onto a ungreased cookie sheet. Repeat with the remaining dough.
7. Bake the cookies for 12-14 minutes and NO MORE. The cookies may seem undercooked, but will continue to develop after they are removed from the oven. When the cookie have cooled they should be soft and chewy in the middle.

Makes about 2 dozen
