In a second bowl combine flour, soda and salt. Mix well and set aside.
In a large bowl blend sugars at medium speed. Add
the butter, and mix to form a grainy paste. Scrape the sides of bowl, then add
the eggs and vanilla. Mix at medium speed until light and fluffy.
Add the flour mixture and blend at low speed just until combined. Don't
overmix. Shape dough into 1−inch balls and roll each ball in cinnamon−sugar

Immediately transfer cookies to a cool surface.
