Snickerdoodle Cookies

Opal Welton (my sister)

Thoroughly mix the shortening, sugar, and eggs.

Sift together remaining ingredients. Stir into shortening mixture.

Chill dough. Preheat oven 400 deg.

Roll dough into 1" balls. Roll each in a mix of 2 Tbsp sugar and 2 tsp ground cinnamon. Place on ungreased baking sheet 2" apart. Bake 8 to 10 minutes.

Makes five dozen. Opal said, "Great cookie! Make sure you have company so you don't eat them all yourself!"
