There is something so warm and comforting about the aroma of cinnamon coming from your oven. Our kids love anything with cinnamon and I had been meaning to make these cookies for a while already. They're super easy to make and get gobbled up as quickly as you'll allow! I found the recipe from All Recipes and pretty left it the way it was written. Some said they had tried these using butter and others stick to the shortening, you decide.

1 cup shortening
1 1/2 cups sugar
2 eggs
2 3/4 cups flour
1 tsp baking soda
2 tsp cream of tarter
1/2 tsp salt
2 tbsp white sugar
2 tsp cinnamon

Pre-heat oven to 375F. Cream together the shortening and sugar, add eggs. Sift together the flower, soda, tarter and salt; stir into the creamed mixture. In a small bowl stir together the 2 tbsp sugar and cinnamon.

Roll the dough into 1 1/2" balls and roll in the cinnamon mixture, don't flatten. Bake for 8-10 minutes on an ungreased cookie sheet.

Bet you can't eat just one!
