Servings 5 people


  • 2 3/4 cups flour
  • 2 tsp cream of tartar
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 8 tbs butter 1 stick (125gr)
  • 1/2 cup vegetable shortening
  • 1 3/4 cups sugar
  • 2 tbs ground cinnamon
  • 2 eggs large


  • Preheat oven to 400°F. Sift together flour, cream of tartar, baking soda and salt; set aside.
  • In the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with a paddle attachment, combine butter, shortening, and 1 ½ C. sugar. Beat on medium speed until light and fluffy, about 2 minutes.
  • Scrape down sides of bowl. Add eggs, and beat to combine. Add dry ingredients, and beat to combine.
  • In a small bowl, combine remaining ¼ C. sugar and the ground cinnamon. Use a small ice-cream scoop to form balls of the dough, and roll in cinnamon sugar. Place about 2 inches apart on the prepared baking sheets.
  • Bake until the cookies are set in center and begin to crack, but not brown. Take out, cool and transfer to cooling rack.
