What’s better than the smells of a fresh, warm baking cookie wafting through the house? Not much, that’s for sure! These delectable little morsels are guaranteed to disappear almost as fast as you can get them out of the oven.If you want to go for traditional, do the recipe as it is listed below. If you want to spice things up a bit (literally), swap out the cinnamon with nutmeg and cloves! 1 tsp nutmeg, 1 tsp cloves, 2 tbsp sugar.. roll the cookies in THAT before baking. Crazy tasty!

  • 1 1/2 cups white sugar
  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon cream of tartar
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons white sugar
  • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
  2. Combine 1 1/2 cups white sugar, butter or margarine, vanilla and eggs. Mix well.
  3. Stir in flour, cream of tartar, baking soda and salt. Blend well. Shape dough into 1 inch balls. Combine 2 tablespoons sugar and 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon. Roll dough in sugar/cinnamon mixture and place 2 inches apart on ungreased baking sheets. Bake 8 to 10 minutes or until set. Immediately remove from cookie sheets.
