This is kind of a fun cookie because of their crinkly appearance. I've tasted these once on a swing through Holmes County. Here is the recipe:
AMISH PUFF COOKIES
1 cup shortening, rounded
1 cup brown sugar, firmly packed
½ cup granulated sugar
2 ¾ cups flour
1 teaspoon cream of tartar
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon baking powder
½ teaspoon salt
Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Mix shortening, sugar and eggs thoroughly. Mix dry ingredients and add to sugar mixture. Chill. Form into balls and roll into mixture of 2 tablespoons sugar and 2 teaspoons cinnamon or add chocolate chips. Press balls with hand. Bake on an ungreased cookie sheet for 8 to 10 minutes. Cookies will puff, then settle down and look crinkly.

That looks like a recipe for snickerdoodles to me. It's a fun recipe to make with the kids. 🙂
I was just looking at the Snickerdoodle recipe. Isn't this the same only with crinkle top?
