Halle's Snickerdoodles

The Christmas holiday has officially began....families are out gathering their
Christmas trees from the snow covered mountains or from the tree venders around town...OR if you are like me, you are pulling it from a box...but however you gather your tree, WHAT 
better way to enjoy the decorating process and time spent with your family, than with some delicious warm snickerdoodles right out of the oven?!?!....right?!

Halle's Snickerdoodles
1/2 c. butter, softened
1/2 c. sugar
1/3 c. brown sugar
1 egg
1/2 t. vanilla
1 1/2 c. flour
1/4 t. salt
1/2 t. baking soda
1/4 t. cream tartar

For rolling:
4 T sugar
2 t. cinnamon

Cream butter and sugars until light and fluffy. Add egg and vanilla, mix until smooth. In another bowl, add all dry ingredient. Whisk until combined. Pour dry ingredient into the wet ingredient. Mix until combined. Place cookie dough in refrigerator for 30-60 minutes. In a small bowl combined cinnamon and sugar...stir. Take a "walnut sized" piece of dough, roll it into a ball. Roll dough into cinnamon and sugar mixture. Place ball onto a lightly greased baking sheet. Press each ball down slightly so it resembles a cookie, more than a ball. Repeat until all cookies are made. Bake cookies at 300 degrees for 10-12 minutes. The cookies might seem undercooked, BUT they continue to firm up a bit after being removed from oven. THESE snickerdoodles are soft, and chewy, and absolutely perfect!!!
