Apple Snickerdoodle Cookies

Gather the ingredients - * Butter * White sugar * Brown sugar * Egg * Vanilla extract * Flour * Cream of tartar * Baking soda * Apple * Cinnamon

Using a cheese grater with large holes, shred a peeled apple until you  have 1/2 cup.  Squeeze the liquid out and set aside the shredded apple.

In a large mixing bowl, beat together butter, white sugar, and brown  sugar until well combined.  Add in egg and vanilla extract, continuing  to beat for 1 minute.

Add in the flour, cream of tartar, and baking soda.  Mix until just combined before folding in the shredded apple.

Cover cookie dough and place in refrigerator for at least 60 minutes.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees and line a sheet pan with parchment paper or  a silicon mat.  Mix together cinnamon and sugar in a bowl and set  aside.

Remove cookie dough from refrigerator and scoop out cookie dough into  tablespoon-sized pieces.  Roll into a ball before rolling in cinnamon  sugar mixture.  Place on sheet pan, leaving at least 3" between each  cookie as they will spread in the oven.

Repeat until sheet pan is full.  Place in oven and bake for 9-11 minutes.

Remove from oven and allow to sit on the sheet pan for a few minutes before transferring to a cooling rack.
