I love this cookie, I made it for Thanksgiving and everyone loved it. They were gone before I was able to get it to the table… I used the NFSC half recipe…
- 3 cups flour
- 1 1/2 tsp. baking powder
- 1 cup butter
- 1 cup granulated sugar
- 2 eggs
- 1 tsp. vanilla extract( I used 1/2 tsp vanilla and 1/2 tsp almond)
- 1/2 tsp. salt
- 1 tsp Cinnamon
- 2 additional TBS Cinnamon to roll the cookies in
- 1 cup powdered sugar
- 2 tablespoons milk ( I used butter)
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
Cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add eggs and vanilla. Mix well. Mix flour, salt, cinnamon, baking powder and add a little at a time to butter mixture. Mix until flour is completely incorporated and the dough comes together. Chill 15 minutes. On piece of waxed paper, shape 1 tablespoon cinnamon into a line about 5 inches long. Using floured fingers, shape 1 tablespoon of dough into a rope 5 inches long. Press one side of dough rope into cinnamon.
On ungreased cookie sheet, coil dough rope tightly, cinnamon side facing center, into cinnamon-roll shape. Press end of rope into roll to seal. Repeat with remaining dough. Cookies barely spread…Place cookies 1 inch apart on cookie sheets.
Bake 7 to 10 minutes or until edges are light golden brown. Cool 1 minute; remove
