Snickerdoodle - what a fun word! You know what else is fun about snickerdoodles? Eating them! Oh yeah...
They are a childhood classic, and for good reasons too. They are quick and easy to throw together, the kids can help roll the dough in cinna-sugar, and they taste down right scrumptious. I'd say that last one is reason enough to make some ASAP, ha ha!

Makes about 3 dozen
1 1/2 cups sugar (or honey sucanat)
1 cup (2 sticks) butter, softened

1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup sugar (or honey sucanat)
2 teaspoons cinnamon
Preheat oven to 400°.
In a large bowl, mix together 1 1/2 cups sugar, butter, and eggs. In a separate bowl stir together the flour, cream of tartar, baking soda, and salt. Add to butter mixture and stir until just combined.
In a small bowl stir together 1/4 cup sugar and cinnamon. Roll dough into 1 1/4-inch balls, and toss in sugar mixture. Place on an ungreased cookie sheet, 2 inches apart.
Bake until set, about 8 to 10 minutes. Transfer cookies to a wire rack to cool. Enjoy!
