More commonly known as Snickerdoodles, Cinnamon Sugar Cookies are a family favourite. Before baking, the cookie is rolled in a cinnamon sugar mixture, which gives the cookie that recognizable and familiar crinkly appearance.
Preheat oven to 350°F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat. Set aside.
In a large mixing bowl, beat together the butter and sugar until well combined - about 3 minutes.
Beat in the eggs and vanilla extract.
Sift together the flour, baking soda, and cream of tartar. Add to the butter and sugar mixture and beat to incorporate. Set aside.
In a separate bowl, whisk together the cinnamon and sugar. Set aside.
Portion one tablespoon of the cookie dough. Roll into a ball and then roll into the cinnamon sugar mixture. Place on the prepared baking sheet, leaving 2 inches of space between each ball. (You will need to bake in batches.)
Bake for 10 minutes. Remove from oven and allow to cool for 3 minutes on the baking sheet before transferring to a wire cooling rack to finish cooling.
