Sugardoodles is my version of a cross between a soft sugar cookie and a Snickerdoodle. Cream of tartar gives a Snickerdoodle its signature crinkle top and soft and chewy texture. Shortening makes them fluffy and butter gives them their rich, homemade flavor.
Bake for 8 or 9 minutes or just until center is set. Do not overbake. They will be soft at first, but will firm up to be a soft and chewy cookie. For a crisp cookie, bake 9 to 10 minutes.
