Hey everyone I want to try cinnamon sugar cookies, but I'm not sure if I should use straight up cinnamon or if I should use a liquid extract? If I do use the cinnamon does anyone know how much to put into the recipe? I really have a hankering for some cinnamon in cookies. icon_biggrin.gif

I'm not sure about cinnamon, but I came across this recipe on a blog for spice cut-out cookies that hold their shape. You could probably switch up the spices to make them more cinnamon-y

I use this amount of spices in half a NFSC recipe (3 cups flour):

2 tsp. cinnamon
½ tsp. nutmeg
¼ tsp. cloves
1 tsp. ginger

If the dough comes out a bit thick I may add a small amount of milk or half and half to the dough. It's yummy.

I would think the cinnamon extract would work well. Maybe 1/2 the vanilla, 1/2 the cinnamon, since it is such a strong flavor.

You could otherwise add cinnamon powder to the flour before mixing. A tsp or two should do it.

Sounds yummy!! I'll have to give it a try. Last year I made pumpkin pudding NFSC. I think I got the idea from KHalstead. I just dumped a package of pumpkin pudding into the dough and they were really good!
