I've mentioned before my dad's expertise in the kitchen.  It's limited, but what he does, he does very well.    Snickerdoodles are one of his specialties and he said I could share his tried and tested recipe with you.

1 stick margarine, softened
1/2 cup shortening
1 1/2 cups sugar
2 eggs
2 tsp. cream of tartar
1/2 tsp. salt
2 3/4 cups sifted flour
1 tsp. soda

2 Tbsp sugar
2 tsp. cinnamon

Cream butter, shortening and sugar in a large bowl.  Add eggs and mix well.  Add remaining four dry ingredients and mix until well combined.  Cover and chill for at least one hour.

Combine 2 Tablespoons sugar and 2 teaspoons cinnamon in a small bowl.

Roll dough into walnut-sized balls.  Coat each ball in the sugar and cinnamon mixture.  Bake at 375 degrees on an ungreased baking sheet until light brown, about 10 minutes.
