How to Make the BEST Snicker Doodle Cookies

I don't know what it is about Snicker Doodles, but people seem to have a strong emotion attached to it.  I make snicker doodles a lot and people often say it reminds them of their grandmother or mother.  It is a feel-good cookie. 

Here is the best recipe that I faithfully use:

Snicker Doodles

1 cup shortening
1-1/2 c. sugar
2 eggs
2-3/4 c. flour
1 t. baking soda
2 t. cream of tartar
1/2 t. salt
4 T. sugar
4 t. cinnamon

Combine shortening, 1-1/2 c. sugar, and eggs and mix well.  Add flour, cream of tartar, baking soda, and salt. Roll into balls and then roll in mixture of 4 T. sugar and cinnamon.  Place 2" apart on ungreased cookie sheet.  Bake 8-10 minutes at 350.

If it is fall time, I combine pumpkin spice and cinnamon together for a more spicy flavor.
