Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
Whisk together flour, cream of tartar, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, and cloves. Set aside.
Cream butter with brown sugar and granulated sugar until light and fluffy using an electric mixer.
Add eggs and vanilla then mix in.
Gradually mix in the dry mixture into the wet mixture until evenly combined.
Prepare the cinnamon sugar mixture by stirring the sugar and cinnamon together.
Roll dough into balls about one inch in diameter. Then, roll each ball in the cinnamon sugar mixture, fully coating them.
Place dough balls about two inches apart on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.
Bake for 11-13 minutes, until set. Remove from oven and let cool on the pan for about two minutes. Then, transfer to a wire rack. Enjoy!
