  • 1 cup butter softened (2 sticks)
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup light brown sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 2 tsp cream of tartar
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 2 tbsp cinnamon


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line three baking sheets with parchment paper and set aside. Using a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment (or a large mixing bowl with a hand mixer), combine the butter, granulated and brown sugars, eggs and vanilla and beat on medium speed until creamy and free of lumps.
  • In a separate bowl, combine the flour, baking soda, cream of tartar and salt. Mix well. Gradually add to the butter mixture and beat on medium speed until just combined.
  • Combine the 1/4 cup sugar and cinnamon in a small bowl. Mix well and set aside. Scoop out tablespoon-size chunks of batter and form balls using your hands. Roll balls in sugar-cinnamon mixture to coat completely. Place onto the prepared baking sheets. Bake in the preheated oven for 8-10 minutes, or until lightly golden around edges. Let cool.
