This is one of Tadd's mom's favorite cookies. She waits all year to eat my Christmas cookies. It is a real treat for her.

1/2 cup butter, softened
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 cup sugar
1 egg
1/2 tsp vanilla
1/4 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp cream of tartar
2 Tbs sugar
1 tsp cinnamon

Beat butter on medium speed for 30 seconds. Add about half of the flour, the 1 cup of sugar, egg, vanilla, baking soda and cream of tartar. Beat until thoroughly combined. Beat in remaining flour. Cover and chill 1 hour. Shape dough into 1-inch balls (small scoop). Combine the 2 Tbs sugar and cinnamon. Roll balls in cinnamon-sugar mixture. Place two inches apart on cookie sheet. Bake at 375 for 10-11 minutes. Cool cookies on wire rack.
