Snicker Doodles

Makes 34
 I store these in the freezer. 
The kids like to nuke them in the microwave.
 The centers get warm and soft while the outsides stay crisp.

1 c unsalted butter
1 3/4 c sugar
2 tsp cream of tartar
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp nutmeg
2 T corn syrup
2 lg eggs
1 T vanilla
3 1/3 c flour
1/2 c sugar

Cream butter and 1 3/4 cup sugar.  Beat in cream of tartar through corn syrup.  Beat in eggs one at a time and vanilla.  Stir in flour.  Let rest 30+ minutes.  Mix 1/2 c sugar and 2 teaspoons cinnamon in a small bowl.  Using a 1 1/2" scoop, drop level scoops and roll in sugar and cinnamon mixture.  Bake 12 minutes at 375F.  Bang pans and rotate half way through.  Using a spatula, push sides of cookies towards their centers if they spread too quickly.  Bang pans again and reshape cookies with two minutes left.  Remove immediately and place on cooling racks.
