  • 1 stick of salted butter (8 tbsp.)
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp. vanilla (real vanilla is best)
  • 1/2 tsp. baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1/2 tsp. cream of tartar
  • 1/2 tsp. cinnamon
  • 1 3/4 cup flour
  • 1 cup chocolate chips
  • 1/2 cup of walnuts (optional)

Cinnamon sugar coating

  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 teaspoons cinnamon

Preheat oven to 350.

Mix butter and sugar at medium speed until pasty. Add egg and vanilla, mix together at medium speed until creamy. Stir in baking soda, salt, cream of tartar, cinnamon, and flour. Roll dough balls in the cinnamon sugar coating. Drop rounded teaspoonfuls about 2” apart on ungreased baking sheet. Bake 12 minutes.  Let cool slightly before removing from baking sheet. Yields approximately 24 cookies. Enjoy!

I live in high altitude so this recipe has been adjusted accordingly. If you try it and they don’t seem right, try reducing the flour a little or adding a little more butter (coconut oil works great too).
