These cookies are perfect. They bring back memories from when I was a child. And they are SO easy to make! Soft, chewy, and cinnamon, these make a great gift...or a little snack. :P I filled some of them with cream cheese icing but that is totally optional. If you want the recipe for my perfect cream cheese icing, check out my Pumpkin Spice Cupcakes recipe.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Combine flour, baking soda, and salt in a small bowl. Cream the softened butter and the sugar in another medium sized bowl. Add in egg and vanilla; mix well. Stir in dry ingredients and mix until it becomes a smooth dough.
  3. Form the dough into small balls (each ball should be about the size of a walnut) and roll each one in cinnamon before placing about two inches apart on an ungreased cookie sheet. These cookies spread a lot, so be aware of this while placing them. Bake for 10-12 minutes or until lightly browned.
  4. Let cool for 5 minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool the rest of the way.
