I have had this recipe in my recipe file for ages. Why didn’t I make them earlier? They are delicious!

220 g softened butter
1 ½ cups sugar
2 eggs
2 tsp vanilla extract
2 ¾ cups flour
2 tsp cream of tartar
1 tsp baking soda
¼ tsp salt

For rolling cookies
2 tbsp sugar
2 tsp ground cinnamon

Preheat the oven to 200 degrees Celsius.

Cream together the butter, sugar, eggs and vanilla extract until really soft and creamy.

Mix the dry ingredients together in a separate bowl, and then add slowly to the wet ingredients.

Roll teaspoonfuls of cookie dough into balls and then roll in the sugar and cinnamon mixture.

Place balls of dough well spaced on a baking sheet and place in the oven for 6-8 minutes. The cookies should flatten out and crack on the surface.
