Snickerdoodles are one of my favourite cookies.  unfortunately, i
had much trouble finding a recipe.  i finally got one from my
friend's mom, but i haven't tried it yet.  here it goes:

1 cup shortening
1 1/2 cups sugar
2 eggs
         mix these first three ingredients thoroughly
sift together:
2 3/4 cups flour
2 tsp cream of tartar
1 tsp soda
1/4 tsp salt

stir the two mixtures together.  roll into ball the size of walnuts.
dip in mixture of equal parts cinnamon and sugar.  place two inches
apart on lightly greased baking sheet.  bake until lightly browned
but still soft (8 - 10 minutes) at 400 degrees farenheit.

makes 3 dozen

hope you enjoy them!  i have to wait until winter break to get a chance
to make anything!
