Cinnamon Sugar Butter Cookies I Recipe

  • 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 1 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup white sugar
  • 1 cup butter, softened
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 4 tablespoons white sugar
  • 2 tablespoons ground cinnamon
  1. Preheat oven to 300 degrees F (150 degrees C).
  2. In a small bowl, combine 4 tablespoons white sugar and 2 tablespoons cinnamon for topping. Set aside.
  3. In a medium bowl, combine the flour, baking soda and salt. Mix with wire whisk and set aside.
  4. In a large bowl, beat together both sugars on medium speed. Add butter and mix to form a grainy paste. Add eggs and vanilla, mix at medium speed until fluffy. Add the flour mixture a little at a time on low to medium speed just until combined.
  5. Shape dough into 1 inch balls and roll each ball into the cinnamon-sugar mixture. Place on ungreased cookie sheet, about 2 inches apart. Bake about 13-18 minutes until lightly golden. Place immediately on a flat surface to cool.
