1/2 cup butter (112 grams)
2/3 cup brown sugar
2/3 cup white sugar
2 egg
2 cup all purpose flour
2 Tbsp cornstarch
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt

Cinnamon Sugar mix:
3/4 cup sugar
2-3 Tbsp ground cinnamon

Preheat the oven to 350.  Cream the butter until it is soft, smooth and light.  Add the sugars to the creamed butter and mix until they are fully incorporated and lighter in color.  Then add the salt and mix well.  Stirring vigorously, add the egg to the mixture and beat until the batter is uniform.  
In another bowl, sift the flour, cornstarch and baking soda.  Then fold the dry ingredients slowly into the wet mixture.  Once the batter is smooth, spoon out a ball of dough and plop them into the cinnamon mix.  Place the dough balls about 3 inches apart, flatten the top and sprinkle on a little more of the cinnamon-sugar mix.  
Bake for about 7-9 minutes, or until the edges are brown while the middle is still blonde.  
Best fresh out of the oven.  Makes about 24 cookies.

I can't wait to try these . . . I've been buying some pretty great snickerdoodles from the WalMart bakery lately, but at $3.99 a dozen, I really should just try making them!!
