Preheat the oven 350 degrees F. and line a large baking sheet with parchment paper. Set aside.
Using a mixer on medium speed, cream together the butter and 2 cups of sugar until light and fluffy.
Add in the eggs and vanilla extract and continue mixing.
In a separate bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda, cream of tartar.
Turn the mixer on low speed and slowly add the flour mixture into the egg mixture until a soft dough forms.
In a small bowl, stir together the ¼ cup sugar and cinnamon to combine.
Using a cookie scoop, scoop a cookie and then roll it into the cinnamon sugar mixture until fully coated. Place on the prepared baking sheet spacing about 2 inches apart.
Bake the cookies for 10 to 12 minutes, until lightly browned. Allow the cookies to cool on the baking sheet for about 5 minutes before transferring to a cooling rack to cool completely.
