    Makes 32 cookies
    1 cup butter, softened
    1 cup sugar
    2/3 cup brown sugar
    2 eggs
    1 teaspoon vanilla
    2 and 1/2 cups flour
    1/2 teaspoon salt
    1 teaspoon cream of tartar
    1 teaspoon baking soda
    2 tablespoons sugar
    1 teaspoon cinnamon
    Preheat oven to 300 degrees. Combine butter, brown sugar, eggs, 1 cup sugar, and vanilla with a hand mixer until creamy.
    In a separate bowl, mix flour, salt, cream of tartar, and baking soda. Slowly add dry ingredients to butter mixture until a soft dough forms. Shape dough into 2 inch balls.
    In a small bowl, combine 2 tablespoons sugar and cinnamon. Press balls into cinnamon sugar and flatten slightly.
    Arrange on baking sheet and baking for only 12-14 minutes. The cookies may seem undercooked, but do not bake longer. Once cooled thoroughly, they will form into a perfect consistency.
