Directions 10 steps | 50 Minutes

Step 1

Measure and prep all ingredients.

Step 2

In a mixing bowl, cream the butter and shortening together using either a hand mixer or a standing mixer fitted with a paddle attachment.

Step 3

Add the granulated and brown sugar and mix until light and fluffy. Beat in eggs one at a time, scraping down the bowl as needed.

Step 4

Mix in the yogurt and the vanilla extract.

Step 5

With the mixer on low speed, add in the flour, baking soda, cream of tartar and salt. Mix until just combined.

Step 6

Refrigerate the dough for at least 30 minutes. Preheat the oven to 350°F. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper.

Step 7

Make the cinnamon-sugar coating. In a small bowl, whisk together the cinnamon and sugar. 

Step 8

Scoop 1½ - 2 tablespoons of dough and roll into a ball. Repeat with remaining dough. Roll the balls of dough into the cinnamon-sugar coating and place on the baking sheet about two-inches apart.

Step 9

Bake cookies for 8-10 minutes or until edges begin to turn golden brown. 

Step 10

Let cool on a wire rack and enjoy!
