Cooking Wright



1 cup butter softened
1 1/2 cup white sugar
2 eggs
2 teaspoons cream of tartar
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
3 cups all purpose white flour

To roll the dough balls in before baking
2 Tablespoons white sugar
2 teaspoons cinnamon


Cream the butter and sugar together. Add the eggs. Combine the salt, baking soda, cream of tartar, and flour together and add to the wet ingredients. Mix until thoroughly combined. If you use a Tablespoon to scoop leveled dough, you should get 40 dough balls that are about 1 1/4” diameter. These will spread to about 3” when cooked. If you try and pack as much of the sugar/cinnamon mix onto the dough balls before cooking, it will almost use up the 2 Tbsp. Sugar and 2 tsp cinnamon that you roll them in. Bake at 400 degrees for 8 minutes.
