Most americans like cinnamon, you find it everywhere, cookies, cakes, cereal... snickerdoodles are cinnamon cookie queen... I topped mine with a little suprise... cinnamon almonds!

They where chewy, yummy and almond was the crunch...

2 1/4 cups all purpose flour
2 teaspoons cream of tartar
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup butter  (2 sticks), softened
1/2 cup brown sugar
2 large eggs

For the coating:
1/2 cup white sugar
2 teaspoons ground cinnamon

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F

In a bowl, mix flour, cream of tartar and baking powder. Set aside. In a separate bowl mix butter and sugar until creamy. Add the eggs one at a time and mix until well incorporated. Add the dry mixture slowly mixing well. Refrigerate the dough for 30 min.
In the meantime, combine in a bowl, sugar and cinnamon and mix well to make sure it's a homogeneous mixture. Once the dough is chilled, drop tablespoonfuls of it into the sugar/cinnamon mix until well coated.

Optional: place a cinnamon almond in the middle.

Bake for 9-11 min until the edges are golden brown.
