I usually try to post recipes or ideas on this blog that have at least some shred of creativity, or originality… and I’m not sure that this recipe fulfils that in any way! But sometimes you just can’t argue with delicious! So, although this may be a recipe that exists in every cookbook, and on every baking site, here it is anyway.
Think of this as simply a reminder of how delicious cinnamon, sugar and butter can be!
1 cup butter, softened
1 1/2 cups sugar
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
2 3/4 cup all purpose flour
2 teaspoons cream of tartar
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 Tablespoons sugar
2 teaspoons cinnamon
~ Directions ~
1.) Preheat oven to 400 degrees (F).
2.) Cream together butter, sugar, eggs and vanilla. Beat until fluffy (30 seconds).
3.) Blend in the flour, cream of tartar, baking soda and salt.
4.) Mix the 2 tablespoons of sugar and cinnamon in a small bowl.
5.) Using a large cookie dough scoop, make balls of dough, and then roll each ball into the bowl of cinnamon/sugar.
6.) Place dough 3 inches apart on an ungreased baking sheet.
7.) Bake 8-10 minutes, or until set but not too hard. Remove from baking sheets and cool on a cooling rack.
