 Snickerdoodles are my hubby's favorite cookie. So on a rare rainy day here in Arizona, I decided to surprise him with a batch. (Mom always baked on rainy days... it was a given.)  Nothing fancy, but simple and delicious. 

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. 
Mix together: 
     1/2 cup shortening
     1/2 cup butter
     1-1/2 cup sugar
     2 eggs

Stir in:
      2-3/4 cups flour
      2 teaspoons cream of tartar
      1 teaspoon soda
      1/4 teaspoon salt

Roll into balls then roll into a mixture of:
     2 Tablespoons of sugar
     2 teaspoons of cinnamon

Bake on an ungreased cookie sheet for 8-10 minutes.
