That's what my youngest used to call cookies. Well, she still calls them that - even at 20, she's a "coobie" fan.
She came home from college Friday evening and naturally, Mom had her favorites waiting for her:
1 c. softened butter (not melted)
1 1/2 c. sugar
Sift together and stir in:
2 3/4 c. flour
1 tsp. baking soda
2 tsp. cream of tartar
1/2 tsp. salt
Roll into balls the size of small walnuts. Roll in a mixture of sugar and cinnamon and place on a buttered cookie sheet. Bake for 8 to 10 minutes at 400 degrees.
And try not to eat them all in one sitting. :-)
