  1. Position oven rack in center of oven; preheat oven to 350°; grease two baking sheets.
  2. Make the dough: sift together the flour, baking powder, nutmeg, and salt into a bowl; stir until well blended; set aside.
  3. In the bowl of an electric mixer, using the paddle attachment, beat the butter, sugar, and molasses at medium-high speed until light, about 1 1/2 minutes.
  4. Add in eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition.
  5. Beat in the vanilla extract; scrape down the sides of the bowl and beat for 30 seconds.
  6. At low speed, add the flour mixture and mix just until blended.
  7. Make the topping: in a small bowl, gently whisk the cinnamon and sugar together.
  8. Shape the dough into 1 1/4 inch balls (using about 1 1/2 tablespoons dough for each cookie).
  9. Roll each ball into the cinnamon-sugar mixture to coat completely; arrange balls on baking sheets, spacing them 2 1/2 inches apart.
  10. Flatten each cookie into a 2-inch disk.
  11. Bake, one sheet at a time, for 16-18 minutes, until the tops are crinkly and they are puffed and lightly browned on the edges.
  12. Transfer the cookies to a wire rack and cool completely.
