I can still smell them in my kitchen, days after they’ve been baked and gobbled up. Such a wonderful smell; they should make a candle scent of it! And the taste of these cookies…..oh my goodness!!
Let the sweet adventure begin!
In a stand mixer add 1 1/2 cups of packed brown sugar to 1 cup of soft shortening.
Then you’ll need 2 eggs,
added one at a time, while beating the mixture.
*(Don’t forget to scrape down the sides with a spatula between additions of ingredients!)*
Then add in 1 teaspoon vanilla and beat. When fully incorporated, stop mixer and move on to the dry ingredients.
In a large bowl, whisk together 2 3/4 cups of all-purpose flour,
with 2 teaspoons of cream of tartar,
1 teaspoon baking soda,
and 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt.
Add about 1/3 of dry ingredients to wet in stand mixer, at a time. Mix between additions.
In a medium bowl add 2 tablespoons white sugar,
with 1 teaspoon cinnamon.
Have your adorable baby use her little pink whisk to mix it all together! (Makes the baking process that much more enjoyable.)
Form a ball of cookie batter, using a cookie scoop or your hands, and roll in cinnamon mixture.
Place on greased cookie sheet.
Bake in preheated 350 degree oven for 14-18 minutes.
Makes 24 cookies.
Bon Appétit, Ma Chérie!
