I've gone a while without posting a recipe.  And for that I apologize.  I've had a lot on my plate lately.  Here's a classic.  Betty Crocker's Snickerdoodles.  I apologize for the poor quality photos.  I was too lazy to get the actual camera and went with the iPhone camera.

Fortune Cookies Snickerdoodles*

Here's what you need
1 1/2 c. sugar
1/2 c. butter or margarin, softened
1/2 c. shortening
2 eggs
2 3/4 c. flour
2 tsp. cream of tartar
1 tsp. baking powder
1/4 tsp. salt
1/4 c. sugar
2 tsp. cinnamon

Here's what you do:

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

In a mixer combine 1 1/2 c. sugar, butter, shortening, and eggs.  Once combined add in flour, cream of tartar, baking powder and salt.

Mix 1/4 c. sugar and cinnamon in a small bowl.  Shape dough into 1 1/4 inch balls (I used this sucker) and roll in cinnamon/sugar mixture (I used this sucker as well - you know, the small cute ones).

Place on baking sheet and bake for 8-10 minutes.

*That's what you get for writing a blog post while under the influence of pain killers.
