Source: "Lemon Meringue Pie Murder Mystery," by Joanne Fluke
Yield: 8 dozen

2 cups butter, melted
2 cups brown sugar
1 cup white sugar
2 eggs, beaten
2 tsp. vanilla
1 tsp. cinnamon
1 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. cream of tartar
1 tsp. salt
4-1/2 cups flour
1/2 cup white sugar, for topping
1 tsp. cinnamon, for topping

Preheat oven to 325°F.

Melt butter; add the sugars and mix. Let cool to room temperature. Meanwhile, beat eggs in a separate bowl. Stir into butter/sugar mixture.

Add vanilla, cinnamon, baking soda, cream of tartar, and salt. Mix well.

Add flour in increments, mixing after each addition.

Roll dough into walnut-sized balls (chill first if dough is too sticky).

Combine the sugar and cinnamon in small bowl. Roll the dough balls in the mixture. Place balls on a greased cookie sheet.

Flatten the dough balls with a greased or floured spatula. Bake for 10 to 12 minutes, or until a touch of gold appears on edges of cookies. Cool on cookie sheet for 2 minutes and remove from sheet.
