Snickerdoodles

1/2 c. butter or margarine
1 c. sugar
1/4 tsp. baking soda
1/4 tsp. cream of tartar
1 egg
1/2 tsp. vanilla
1 1/2 c. all-purpose flour
2 tbsp. sugar
1 tsp. ground cinnamon

In a medium mixing bowl, beat the butter or margarine with mixer for 30 seconds. Add the 1 cup sugar, baking soda, and cream of tartar. Beat until combined. Beat in the egg and vanilla and as much of the flour as you can with the mixer. Stir in remaining flour. Cover and chill at least 30 minutes(until pliable).

Combine the 2 tbsp. sugar and the cinnamon in small bowl. Shape cookie dough into 1-inch balls. Roll balls in sugar-cinnamon mixture to coat. Place 2 inches apart on cookie sheet. Bake at 375* for 10-11 minutes or until edges are golden.

Makes about 3 dozen.
