When you take the cookies out of the oven they will look slightly underdone, that’s okay. Don’t cook them longer. Let the hot cookies sit on the cookie sheet for 5 minutes before putting it on a cooling rack.

Ingredients

  • 1 c. softened unsalted butter (2 half cup sticks)
  • 1 1/2 c. white granulated sugar
  • 2 large eggs

  • 2 tsp. cream of tartar
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • 1 tsp. baking soda
  • 2 tsp. cinnamon
  • 2 tbsp white granulated sugar

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  2. Cream the white sugar and butter together in a large bowl with an electric hand mixer.
  3. Add the eggs and mix all together.
  4. In a separate bowl, add the flour, cream of tarter, salt, and baking soda. Whisk together.
  5. Slowly, add in the dry ingredients in with the wet ingredients. Mix with a rubber spatula.
  6. In a separate small bowl, make the cinnamon sugar coating. Mix cinnamon and white sugar together. Set aside.
  7. Get your cookie trays ready. Place silicone baking sheets on the trays or line with parchment paper.
  8. Start by rolling dough into 1.5-2 tbsp balls. Roll the cookie dough balls in the cinnamon sugar coating, then place on the cookie sheet.
  9. Bake cookies for 8-10 minutes. Do not overbake! I bake my cookies at 8-9 minutes. The cookies will look underbaked, but they are not! Keep hot cookies on the cookie try for at least 5 minutes before transferring to a cooling rack.
