The Kid wanted to make cookies and he promised he’d do all the work. This is basically a sugar cookie pumped up on cinnamon. True to his word, he did all the work – I just had to put them in the oven. He is only 5 after all.
2-1/4 cup flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
2 tablespoons ground cinnamon
pinch of salt
1 cup butter (2 sticks) softened
1 cup white sugar
3/4 cup brown sugar
1-1/2 teaspoons vanilla
2 tablespoons sugar
2 teaspoons cinnamon
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
In a bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda, salt and cinnamon. (If you think that much cinnamon is gonna kill you, go ahead and hold it back to 1-1/2 tablespoons.)
In a mixer, cream together the butter and the sugars until mixed. Add the egg and the vanilla.
Slowly add the flour mixture into the egg mixture. Until the batter is well blended.
Drop by teaspoonfuls onto a prepped cookie sheet. A small ice cream scoop works well for this. Sprinkle the cinnamon sugar mixture over the rounded balls of dough.
Bake for 10-12 minutes. Let cool on wire racks. They taste FANTASTIC right out of the oven. They are soft, with a crunch. Perfect for snacking.
