  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, softened
  • 1/2 cup vegetable shortening
  • 1 3/4 cups sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 2 teaspoons cream of tartar
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 4 teaspoons ground cinnamon


  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper.
  2. In a large bowl, cream together the unsalted butter, shortening, and 1½ cups of the sugar. Add the eggs and vanilla extract, and mix until well combined.
  3. In a separate medium bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda, cream of tartar, and salt. Gradually add to the butter mixture. Mix until combined, being careful not to over-mix.
  4. In a pie plate, mix together the remaining ¼ cup sugar and the ground cinnamon.
  5. Using a cookie scoop, shape the dough into 1½-inch balls. Roll each in the cinnamon-sugar mixture and place on the prepared baking sheets about 2 inches apart. Bake for 7 minutes.
  6. Cool on the baking sheets for 2 minutes, then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely before serving.
