🔆How to Make Thick Chewy Snickerdoodle Cookies

💙There is one key ingredient that's critical to the signature Snickerdoodle taste: cream of tartar. You might think this sounds like an odd thing to put in your dessert, but it's the age-old secret to those Snickerdoodle cookies you love so much.

Let's Start: 
Combine the butter, shortening, and sugar,  and beat on medium-high speed on a stand-up mixer until creamed and well combined about 2 minutes.

Add the eggs, and vanilla, scrape down the sides of the bowl, and beat on medium-high speed until well combined

Add the flour, baking soda, cream of tartar, and salt, and beat on low speed until just combined. Chill the dough for 1 hour (this will keep the cookie from going flat)

While the dough is chilling
 I prepare my baking sheets with parchment paper; not only will the parchment help cookies bake more evenly, but the non-stick quality also helps prevent them from cracking or breaking when lifting them off the sheet.

Using a 2 tbsp cookie scooper, or using a large tablespoon, roll dough balls into equal-sized mounds.

Roll dough balls in cinnamon sugar, place dough mounds on the baking sheet, and space at least 2 inches apart.
