3-3/4 cup flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon cream of tartar
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup butter or margarine
2 cups sugar
2 eggs
1/4 cup milk
1 teaspoon vanilla
3 Tablespoons sugar
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

Grease a cookie sheet. Stir together flour, soda, cream of tartar and 1/2 teaspoon salt. Beat butter for 30 seconds; add the 2 cups sugar and beat till fluffy. Add eggs, milk, and vanilla; beat well. Add dry ingredients to beaten mixture, beating till well combined. Form dough into 1-inch balls; roll in a mixture of the 3 Tablespoons sugar and the cinnamon. Place balls 2 inches apart on a cookie sheet; flattening slightly with the bottom of a drinking glass. Bake in a 350 degree oven about 8 minute or until light golden. Makes about 66.

Hint: These are best just slightly underbaked - makes them more soft and chewy

*i always half the recipe. 2 cups sifted flour works perfectly when halved.
