Many years ago when my oldest was in 3rd grade (he’s 24 now), his class made a cookbook.  We’ve recently moved and that cookbook is one of the many things that resurfaced during the unpacking process.  My youngest son LOVES snickerdoodles and when he saw this new recipe he couldn’t wait to try it.

3 3/4 cups flour
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp cream of tartar
1 cup butter
2 cups sugar
2 eggs
1/4 cup milk
1 tsp vanilla

3 Tbs sugar
1 tsp cinnamon

Lightly grease cookie sheet.  In a small bowl, combine flour, salt, baking soda and cream of tartar.  In a larger bowl, beat butter 30 seconds.  Add 2 cups sugar and beat until fluffy.  Add eggs, milk and vanilla.  Beat well.  Add dry ingredients, beat well
Refrigerate dough 30 minutes.  Preheat oven to 375. 

Form dough into 1 inch balls, roll in mixture of sugar and cinnamon.  Place 2 inches apart on cookie sheet and flatten slightly with bottom of a glass.  Bake for 10 to 12 minutes or until light golden brown around the edges. Allow to cool on the cookie sheet for 5 minutes before transferring to cooling rack.
