I have decided to join the Cookie Carnival with Tami over at Tami's Kitchen Table Talk. This is a fun get together once a month where Tami emails two cookie recipes. I make one or both and post on my blog. I then email a picture and my blog post to Tami. At the beginning of the next month she posts a Carnival Round Up of all who participated. You are not required to participate every month, but it's a fun way to bake new cookie recipes. It's also fun to see how other people add variety to the recipes as well. You can find more information on Tami's blog and get her email address from there. You can also click the Cookie Carnival button on the side of my blog to get more information.
This month I made Sassy Cinnamon Cookies. This cookie reminded me of a Snickerdoodle with chocolate chips and nuts inside. I didn't have cinnamon chips. Very yummy!

- Heat oven to 375°F (if using dark or nonstick pan, heat oven to 350°F). In large bowl, beat 1 1/2 cups sugar, the butter, vanilla and eggs with electric mixer on medium speed, or mix with spoon, until creamy. Stir in flour, cream of tartar, baking soda and salt. Stir in cinnamon chips and pecans.
