THE FLOUR GARDEN RECIPE:
6 1/4 cups plus 2 tablespoons sugar
4 1/2 cups butter
4 1/4 cups unbleached white pastry flour
2 1/2 tablespoons cream of tartar
3/4 tablespoon salt
2 tablespoons baking soda
4 1/4 cups unbleached all-purpose flour cinnamon and sugar for sprinkling
Cream first two ingredients together until light and fluffy. Whip in the eggs. Sift together the dry ingredients and slowly add to the creamed mixture. Blend. Scoop the finished cookie dough with a spoon or small scoop, placing small balls of dough onto lightly greased cookie sheets. Before baking, sprinkle with cinnamon and sugar. Bake at 350 degrees until golden brown around the edges, about 12-15 minutes. Makes 6 dozen.
