  • ½ cup Butter softened
  • 1 ½ cups Flour, all-purpose
  • 1 cup Sugar
  • 1 Egg
  • 1 teaspoon Vanilla
  • ¼ teaspoon Baking Soda
  • ¼ teaspoon Cream of Tartar
  • 2 tablespoons Sugar
  • 1 teaspoon Cinnamon


  • Heat oven to 375 degrees.
    In a large bowl, beat the butter with a mixer for 30 seconds or so to lighten it up.
    Add half the flour, one cup of sugar, the egg, vanilla, baking soda and cream of tartar. Beat with the mixer until combined, about a minute.
    Add remaining flour and continue to mix until just combined.
    Push the mixture together with your hands forming a ball, cover with plastic wrap and chill in the refrigerator for an hour.
    Shape the dough into one inch balls.
    Combine the 2 tablespoons of sugar with the one teaspoon of cinnamon, and roll each dough ball in the cinnamon sugar mixture.
    Place balls several inches apart on the lined baking sheet.
    Bake for 10-11 minutes, edges will be lightly golden.
    Cool on a wire rack.
