Bakery Style Snickerdoodle Cookies


1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened

1/2 cup butter flavored crisco

1 1/2 cup sugar

2 eggs

2 tsp vanilla paste

2 3/4 cup all purpose flour

2 tsp cream of tartar

1 tsp baking soda

1/4 tsp salt

2 tsp cinnamon

1/4 tsp nutmeg

1/2 cup sugar


Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside. Using a hand mixer or stand mixer cream together the butter and crisco with the sugar. Add in eggs and vanilla paste and beat. In a medium sized bowl combine the flour, cream of tartar, baking soda and salt. Slowly add flour mixture to the mixing bowl with creamed butter. Slowly mix together until all of the flour is well combined.

Place cinnamon, nutmeg and sugar in a small bowl. Mix well and set aside to use as cookie coating. Using a large cookie scoop, place large rounds into the cinnamon sugar mixture. Toss to coat and place on baking sheet. Allow 3 inches between each scoop for spreading while baking. Place into the center of oven and bake for 10 minutes. Cookies will be lightly golden and soft. Remove from oven and allow to sit 1 minute before placing on a cooling rack to cool.
