This one's for you, New Orleans!

(Excerpted from "The Kosher Palette")

1/2 c. margarine
3/4 c. sugar
1 large egg
1-1/4 c. flour
1 tsp. cream of tartar
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1/4 tsp. salt
1 Tbsp. sugar
1 Tbsp. ground cinnamon

Beat margarine until fluffy. Gradually add sugar. Beat in egg. Add flour, cream of tartar, baking soda, and salt to margarine mixture, beating until blended. Cover and refrigerate for 1 hour. (Feed children dinner, gently threatening that if they don't finish their chicken they can't help with the cookies when that timer rings!) Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Combine sugar and cinnamon in a small bowl. Form the dough into walnut-sized balls, roll in cinnamon mixture and put on ungreased baking sheets (line with parchment paper to avoid unnecessary clean-up). Bake for 10-12 minutes until cookies are flat and edges are a bit brown. Transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.

Love and kisses from New York!
