This cookie has a thin, crunchy cinnamon-sugar exterior and a soft, chewy, melt-in your mouth center — just the way I like them. If you’re a fan of a more firmer cookie, just let
them bake for an extra minute or two. Pop one in the microwave before devouring for a cinnamon-spicy warm treat.

Cream together butter, shortening, 1 1/2 cups sugar,
the eggs and the vanilla. Blend in the flour, cream of tartar, soda and
salt. Shape dough by rounded spoonfuls into balls.
