These are my hubby's fave. Every year around Thanksgiving he starts panicking...asking if I am definiely making them for Christmas.
I keep telling him he needs to be a good boy if he wants them!

2 Eggs
2 ¾ Cups all purpose flour
2 Teaspoons cream of tartar
1 Teaspoon baking soda
¼ Teaspoon salt
2 Tablespoon sugar
2 Teaspoon cinnamon
Mix shortening and 1 ½ cup sugar together
Add eggs and mix well
Mix dry ingredients and add to mixture
Roll the dough into balls the size of small walnuts
