Naomi has been helping me cook alot- it's amazing how she pays attention and mimics me. Girls and boys are so different!

1 c. butter, softened
1 1/2 c. sugar
2 eggs
2 3/4 c. flour
2 tsp. cream of tartar
1 tsp. baking soda
1/4 tsp. salt
Mix butter, sugar and eggs add dry ingredients. Roll into balls the size of small walnuts. Roll the balls into a mixture of 2 TB. sugar and2 tsp. cinnamon. Place about 2" apart on ungreased baking sheet. Bake 8-10 minutes. Do not over bake. They won't brown much.

Is this a recipe you could use margarine instead of real butter? I was going to make them the other day but I only had margarine.

I'm not sure. Probably- even marg/shortening would probably work. I've sworn off margarine, so haven't used it in years.

I don't use margarine either, butter is better as it does not contain hydrogenated fat.

It's nice to have a little helper, my niece likes to muck in, wash the dishes and sweep the floor, she is six. She gets upset if you don't let her help...kids.

Anyway, are these biscuits or cakes, I'm not really sure. I will have a go at making them, but I want to be sure what they are.

This is actually a cookie. :-) They are one of my favorite!

Ok, thanks Rachel. It looks easy enough to make. I just need to buy the cream of tartar.
