Mrs Fields Snickerdoodles

It's been raining and gloomy around here a bit lately.  When it gets gloomy, there's only one thing to do.  Bake cookies!

Are you a fan of snickerdoodles?  I haven't ever really cared much for them.  Well, that's until I came across this recipe for Mrs Fields Snickerdoodles.  They are amazing!  They're buttery and chewy and SO good!  The kids couldn't get enough of them.  Literally.  My 2 year old tried eating them 3 at a time!

1/2 cup butter, softened
1/2 cup sugar
1/3 cup brown sugar
1 egg
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1 1/2 cups flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon cream of tartar

2 tablespoons sugar
1 teaspoon cinnamon

In a large bowl, cream together the butter and sugars. Add the egg and vanilla and beat until smooth.  Add dry ingredients and mix until well combined.  Cover and refrigerate for 30 to 60 minutes.  Preheat oven to 300.  In a small bowl, combine the cinnamon and 2 tablespoons sugar.  Roll dough into small balls about the size of a walnut, then roll the balls in the cinnamon sugar.  Place balls on a greased cookie sheet about 2 inches apart.  Bake for 12 to 14 minutes.
