Snickerdoodles

From the Betty Crocker Picture Cookbook  Рgo Betty!  Snickerdoodles remain my very favorite cookie.

1 cup butter
1 1/2 cups sugar
2 eggs

Blend very thoroughly.

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

Blend and stir into butter mixture until smooth.

Roll into small balls and tumble in a mix of:

2 Tbsp sugar
2 tsp cinnamon

Place about 2″ apart and bake at 400 for 8-10 minutes. Be careful not to burn your mouth when you devour them the moment they leave the oven.
