Snickerdoodle Recipe

I changed up a Snickerdoodle cookie recipe and it turned out yummy =)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
1/2 cup butter, softened
1/2 cup butter flavored shortening
Mix butter and shortening together until combined.
1/2 cup sugar
1 cup brown sugar
Add sugars to butter mixture and whip for 5 minutes until batter is fluffy.
While that is mixing, measure and sift these 4 ingredients together in a separate bowl:
2 3/4 cups flour
1 tsp cream of tartar
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
Add to butter mixture:
1 tsp powdered vanilla (can add liquid)
2 eggs
Mix until combined.
Add flour mixture to the butter bowl and again mix until combined.
In a separate smaller bowl combine these 3 ingredients:
1 tbsp ground cinnamon
1 tsp ground nutmeg
3 tbsp turbinado sugar (coarse sugar that gives a little crunch!)
Roll cookie dough into balls, dip into cinnamon concoction and lay on ungreased cookie sheet, bake for 11 minutes. Makes 36 cookies.
