Preheat oven to 400.

Cream butter, sugar, and eggs. Sift and stir in dry ingredients.

Mix sugar and cinnamon for sugar coating in a separate bowl. Take 2 tbs of the dough and roll it into a ball. Now, roll it in the sugar coating mixture. Place 2 inches apart on ungreased baking sheet. Bake about 5 minutes or until just beginning to brown but still soft. Let stand 5 minutes before removing from pan to cooling rack.

Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
When I was a young boy, my favorite place (if I wasn't out in the woods in Germany) was in my mother's kitchen. This was back in the Betty Crocker days when perfect kitchens were spotless and you didn't have appliances on the counter, and the only cookbook in the house was The Betty Crocker Cookbook. My mother would let me help her bake by jobs like stirring or mixing, or some little menial task. My job with the Snickerdoodles was to take the balls of dough and roll them in the sugar. But I would shine with pride when the final dish was served because "I helped." Thanks to my sister Cathi who kept up with this recipe over the years, better than I did.
