Courtney King Hall


1/2 cup butter (1 stick) softened
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/3 cup brown sugar
1 egg
1/2 tsp vanilla
1 1/2 cup flour
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp cream of tartar
For rolling:
2 tbsp granulated sugar
1 tsp cinnamon

In a large bowl cream together the butter & sugars. Add
the egg and vanilla. Beat until smooth. In another bowl
combine flour, salt, baking soda, and cream of tartar.
Pour the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients and mix
well. Preheat oven to 320 while you let the dough rest in
the fridge. In a small bowl combine the sugar with the
cinnamon for topping. Roll about 2 1/2 tbsp. of dough into
a ball. Roll this dough around in the cinnamon/sugar
mixture and place on a ungreased cookie sheet. Bake
cookies for 12-14 minutes and no more!! Cookies may seem
under cooked but continue to develop after removed
from the oven.

Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
My first baking job as a young child that my Mom gave me was this very
cookie. I always thought of that cookie being special, just
like me and my Mom's. I was so surprised when I asked
my daughter for one of her recipes and this was it. It
was like I'm ushering in the next generation for the King
recipes in, and my daughter started with the same one I
did 60 years ago. Although her cookie was perfect and
well improved over Snickerdoodles from the past. Her
Grandma June would be so proud of her.
