My 1963 Betty Crocker “Cooky Book” calls these a delicious family cooky from Mrs. Ronald Anfinson in Benson, Minnesota. While I’ve eaten them before this was the very first time I made snickerdoodles. And I have to say, they were pretty swell!

1/2 cup shortening

1/2 cup butter, softened

1 1/2 cups sugar

2 eggs

2 3/4 cups flour

2 tsp cream of tartar

1 tsp soda

1/4 tsp salt

1/4 cup sugar

4 tsp cinnamon

Heat oven to 400.

Mix butter, shortening, sugar, and eggs thoroughly. Blend flour, cream of tartar, salt, and soda. Stir into butter mixture. Mix well. Shape dough into 1” balls and roll in cinnamon sugar (1/4 cup sugar and 4 tsp cinnamon mixed together).
