Ingredients

Cookies

1 cup butter, softened

1 cup granulated sugar

2/3 cup brown sugar

2 eggs

1 tsp. vanilla

1 tsp baking soda

1/2 tsp. cream of tartar

3 cups flour

Topping

1/2 cup granulated sugar

4 tsp. ground cinnamon

Directions

Preheat oven to 300 degrees.

In a bowl of your stand mixer, cream softened butter and sugars together. ( I use salted butter so I don't have to measure out salt)

Add eggs and vanilla. Beat until smooth.

Add baking soda and cream of tartar

Add flour 1/2 - 1 cup at a time, stirring in between additions so you don't pouf flour everywhere!

Chill dough in refrigerator for at least 30 - 60 minutes.

Combine topping sugar and cinnamon together in a small bowl.

Using a cookie scoop, scoop out balls of dough and roll in the cinnamon/sugar mix.

Place on un-greased cookie sheet. ( I also use silicone baking mats for easy clean up)

Bake for 12-14 minutes depending on your oven.

Do NOT over bake.
