North Pole Snickerdoodles



Mix together thoroughly:

1 cup soft margarine
1 1/2 cups sugar
2 eggs

Sift together and stir in:

2 3/4 cups flour
2 tsp. cream of tartar
1 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt

Chill dough for 1 hour. Roll into balls the size of small walnuts. Roll in mixture of 2 tablespoons of sugar and 2 teaspoons of cinnamon. (My mom uses red and green sugar to make them look Christmasy.)

Place about 2 inches apart on ungreased baking sheet. Bake until lightly browned.. but still soft. These cookies puff up at first, then flatten out with crinkled tops.

Temperature: 400 degrees

Time: Bake 8 – 10 minutes

Amount: About 5 dozen 2 inch cookies.
