Snickerdoodles for Company Bake Sale

So I have officially been working in the corporate world for 2.5 weeks and we are having our annual bake sale to raise money to throw a Christmas party for under privileged children :)  I worked till 6 today and then commuted an hour home and still managed to whip up 4 dozen cookies for the bake sale tomorrow, phew!  I am still working on getting this recipe right, but here is the recipe I have been using: (adapted from Martha Stewart)

3/4 cup butter
1/4 cup shortening
1 1/2 cups sugar
2 eggs
2 1/4 cups flour
2 tsp. cream of tartar
1 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. nutmeg
1/4 tsp. cinnamon

Cinnamon Sugar:
3 tbsp. sugar
4 tsp. cinnamon
1 tsp. cardamom
(1) Preheat oven to 400˚F. Cream butter, shortening, and sugar together until smooth. Add in the eggs one at a time and be sure to incorporate each egg thoroughly.

(2) In a separate bowl, combine flour, cream of tartar, baking soda, salt, nutmeg, and cinnamon.

(3) Slowly mix the dry ingredients into the wet, just until combined.  Do not over mix!

(4) Mix the cinnamon sugar mixture in a shallow bowl that will allow for easy coating.  Roll 1" dough balls into the cinnamon sugar mixture until completely coated. (These cookies tend to spread quite a bit so if you would like a puffier cookies, refrigerate the dough balls before baking)

(5) Bake for about 6-8 minutes, for small 1" dough balls (longer for larger cookies).  Cookies may not look done, but they most likely are!

Phew, I am exhausted!
