You will find these in my freezer at almost any given time (since I like cinnamon as some people like chocolate). They are a favorite and these treats will always be on my dainty tray. I have been making these for many years

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Mix flour, butter (or marg), and baking powder like a pie crust.
  2. Add milk and eggs.(best to mix the milk and eggs together).Add about 3/4 of the milk mixture to the flour mixture first, since you may not need all of the milk mixture. (This would be like a pie crust)
  3. Mix well.
  4. Divide into 10 balls.
  5. Combine the sugar and cinnamon.
  6. Sprinkle some sugar/cinnamon mixture on counter.
  7. Place 1 ball of dough in sugar/cinnamon and roll into a circle, be sure to have sugar mixture on the top as well.
  8. Cut into 8 wedges.
  9. Roll up each wedge starting at the wide end.
  10. Place on an ungreased cookie sheet.
  11. Repeat with the remaining balls of dough.
  12. Bake at 375°F for 20 minutes.
  13. Note: Each wedge will be about 1 1/2" at the wide end.
  14. You may have more sugar mixture than you need. That all depends on how much mixture you like on the wedges.
  15. Prep time will vary.

With the new rating system I can only give these four stars but your shortbread is still a five star recipe. They really are a pleasant change from the normal cookies and bars.
