These are one of the best cookies I have ever eaten. They make up easily, and they disappear fast. I make these every year when we put up our Christmas Tree. I serve them with hot Cocoa while we decorate our tree. I swear the cookies are anticipated as much as the tree!
- In a mixer bowl, cream together sugar and butter; beat in egg and vanilla.
- Combine flour, cinnamon, baking powder and salt.
- Add to butter mixture.
- Blend well.
- Cover and refrigerate 2 hours or till firm enough to roll into balls.
- Shape dough into small balls about 3/4-inch in diameter.
- Roll in cinnamon sugar to coat.
- Set cookies 1-inch apart on lightly greased cookie sheets.
- Bake at 350° for 10 minutes or till the edges are lightly browned.
- Cool slightly on pans, then remove to racks to cool completely.
I used egg beaters and reduced-fat margarine. It still turned out great. Because of the lower-fat, higher-water content, the cookies puffed - so we had Cinnamon PUFFS! Yum! I rolled them in cinnamon sugar and the whole downstairs smelled wonderful while these gems were baking. They tasted good out of the oven and after a few days too! They reminded me of Dunkin' Donuts' donut holes - except not as greasy, sticky, caloric, or fattening. EVEN BETTER! THe way I made it, the calories: 24; fat grams: .86
These cookies are awesome and easy to make too! I am so happy I tried them. Definately not your ordinary Christmas cookie. I think they'd be great with a cup of tea...off to do that now.
Excellent cookies. Easy to make. I made them soft and chewy instead of crispy and they were superb. Just decreased time by 2 minutes if you are a chewy fan. Reminded me of cinnamon toast in a cookie form.
