Cream together the shortening, sugar and eggs. Sift the dry ingredients together and stir into sugar mixture. Chill the dough 2 hours.
Roll chilled dough into balls about the size of walnuts. Roll each in a mixture of 2 tablespoons sugar and 2 teaspoons cinnamon. Place 2 inches apart on a greased cookie sheet. Bake 8 to 10 minutes.
Makes about 5 dozen great little Snickerdoodles.
