My very favorite cookies

Grandma Peterson's Snickerdoodles

1 c. Crisco

1 1/2 c. sugar

2 eggs

2 3/4 c. flour

2 t. cream of tartar

1 t. baking soda

1/4 t. salt

1 t. vanilla

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Mix shortening, sugar and eggs until fluffy. Add vanilla. Blend dry ingredients together (I only do 2 cups of flour in this step because 2 3/4 is sometimes too much) and add to wet ingredients. If dough is still sticky, add flour in 1/4 c. increments until dough seems right for cookies. Shape into 1 inch balls and roll in cinnamon and sugar. Bake 8-10 minutes. (Makes 3 dozen about)
