Directions

  1. In a large bowl, whisk together flour, baking poweder, salt and cinnamon.
  2. In another large bowl, with an electric mixer, beat butter and granulated sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in egg and vanilla.
  3. With mixer on low speed, gradually add flour mixture; beat just until combined.
  4. Divide dough in half; form into two 3/4 inch thick disks. Wrap each in plastic. Refrigerate at least 1 hour.
  5. Preheat oven to 325°F
  6. Place one disk between two sheets of lightly floured parchment paper; roll out to an 1/8 inch thickness, lightly dusting dough with flour as needed.
  7. Cut out shapes with lightly floured cookie cutters; if dough gets soft, chill 10 minutes.
  8. Transfer cut-out shapes to a parchment-lined baking sheet. Re-roll scraps; cut more shapes. Repeat with remaining disk.
  9. Bake cookies, decorating if desired, until edges are golden, 10 to 15 minutes, rotating sheets halfway through.
  10. Cool cookies 1 minute on sheets, then transfer to wire racks to cool completely.
  11. Cookies can be stored in an airtight container at room temperature up to one week.
