1 3/4 cups shortening
1/2 cube margarine
3 cups sugar
4 eggs
5 1/2 cups flour
4 teaspoons cream of tartar
2 teaspoons baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
cinnamon sugar for coating

Cream shortening, margarine, sugar, and eggs together. Then add the flour, cream of tartar, soda and salt. mix well. Form into balls and roll in cinnamon sugar. Place on greased cookie sheet and flatten slightly (we use the bottom of a cup or something else that is completely flat)
Bake at 400 degrees for 8-10 min or until the edge is slightly brown.
This makes quite a few cookies, you can freeze the balls of cookie dough you just have to thaw completely before cooking.
