Cinnamon Cookies (Snickerdoodles)

For whatever reason, I became the cinnamon cookie (or snickerdoodle) baker in my family at a fairly young age...Still to this day, my brothers ask me to make these for them when we are together. They are soft...which I think sets them apart from other cinnamon cookie recipes...
Cinnamon Cookies
1/2 cup shortening
1 cube butter
1 1/4 cup sugar
2 eggs

2 3/4 cup flour
2 tsp cream of tarter
1 tsp soda
1/2 tsp salt

Roll dough into balls the size of a golf ball. Roll in cinnamon and sugar mixture. Bake on ungreased cookie sheet at 400 for 8 minutes.
