Recipe for Snickerdoodles

This is one of my favorite Christmas cookies. I'm not sure of this recipe's origin, my mom gave it to me. These are very easy to make and don't call for too many ingredients. Most of the ingredients you probably always have in your pantry. Enjoy!

1 cup unsalted butter, room temperature
1 and a 1/2 cups granulated sugar
2 eggs, room temperature
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 and 2/3 cup self-rising flour
2 tablespoons sugar
2 teaspoons cinnamon

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. In a mixing bowl, cream the butter and sugar together. Beat in eggs one at a time and the vanilla. Stir in flour. Shape dough into balls, using a rounded teaspoon. Combine the 2 tablespoons of sugar with the cinnamon in a shallow bowl. Then roll the balls of dough in the cinnamon/sugar mixture. Place each ball two inches apart on ungreased baking sheets. Bake 8-10 minutes or until edges are set. Let cool on the pan for a few minutes and then transfer to a cooling rack until completely cool. Makes about 44 cookies.
