  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 tsp cream of tartar
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 cup unsalted butter, at room temperature
  • 1 1/2 cups plus 4 Tbsp sugar divided
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 tsp ground cinnamon


  • Preheat oven to 350˚F. Line cookie sheet with parchment paper.
  • In a medium sized bowl, whisk together the flour, cream of tartar, baking soda, and salt; set aside.
  • In a large mixing bowl cream together the 1 1/2 cups sugar and butter until light and fluffy (about 3 minutes).  Beat in the eggs one at a time.
  • Slowly add the flour mixture to the wet ingredients. Form into 1 1/2-inch dough balls.  In a wide bowl, combine the 4 Tbsp sugar with the cinnamon. Roll the dough balls in the cinnamon and sugar mixture, then place on baking sheet.  Bake for 12 minutes, until edges are golden.  The cookies will flatten as they bake and set as they cool.
  • Allow to cool for 8 minutes before removing from cookie sheet to cooling rack.
