Here's another cookie on our Christmas Cookie List. These are really easy and super yummy!

1 cup shortening
1 & 1/2 cups sugar
2 eggs
2 & 3/4 cups flour
1 & 1/2 tsp. xanthan gum
1 tsp. baking soda
2 tsp. cream of tartar
1/2 tsp. salt

2 tblsp. sugar
2 tsp. cinnamon

In a large mixing bowl, cream together shortening, sugar and eggs. Add remaining ingredients and mix until well combined. Chill for 1 hour or overnight. Form into 1-inch balls (a cookie scoop works best). Mix together the sugar and cinnamon. Roll each ball in the mixture. Place on a cookie sheet. Slightly flatten with your hand or with a glass. Bake at 400 degrees for 8-10 minutes, or until cookie springs back when you touch the top with your fingertip. Remove to wire rack to cool completely before storing in an airtight container.
