Add the add the flour, baking soda, cream of tartar, optional salt, and beat on low speed until just combined, about 1 minute.

Refrigerate for at least 1 hour, up to 5 days. Do not bake with unchilled dough because cookies will bake thinner, flatter, and be more prone to spreading.
Preheat oven to 350F, line a baking sheet with a Silpat or spray with cooking spray.

For the Topping – In a small bowl, combine sugar, cinnamon, and stir to combine.
Dredge each mound of dough through cinnamon-sugar.
Place dough mounds on baking sheet, spaced at least 2 inches apart Bake for about 9 minutes, or until edges have set and tops are just set, even if slightly undercooked, pale, and glossy in the center; don’t overbake for soft, pillowy cookies. For firmer cookies, bake a minute or two longer. Cookies firm up as they cool
