How many cookies can Santa Claus eat?!?!?!

These snickerdoodles may be my new favorite kind of cookie. (I’ve accidentally eaten about 8 already- oops!) They have a very christmasy taste, so they’re perfect! Very easy! It makes a huge batch… I used three cookie sheets, then had to reuse one just to cook 7 more. BUT- it was totally worth it. I’m having a great, normal Christmas Eve day, full of cooking, dancing (to Christmas music of course), and figuring out presents last minute =D. Praise the Lord for saving his children through a little baby! Merry Christmas!

1/2 cup butter, softened
1/2 cup shortening
1 1/2 cups white sugar
2 eggs
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
2 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons cream of tartar
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons white sugar
2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).
2. Cream together butter, shortening, 1 1/2 cups sugar, the eggs and the vanilla. Blend in the flour, cream of tartar, soda and salt. Shape dough by rounded spoonfuls into balls.
3. Mix the 2 tablespoons sugar and the cinnamon. Roll balls of dough in mixture. Place 2 inches apart on ungreased baking sheets.
4. Bake 8 to 10 minutes, or until set but not too hard. Remove immediately from baking sheets.
