I love cinammon. It smells so tempting... And I love cookies! This cinammon shortbread does not require egg yolk like the other one. I didn't have nutmeg, so I used 1/1/2 tsp of cinammon, for half of the recipe. I omitted the vanilla extract from www.fooddownunder.com

- 1⁄4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
- 1⁄2 teaspoon salt
