  • Take about 2 1/2 tablespoons of dough and roll it into a ball.
  • Roll this dough in the cinnamon/sugar mixture and press onto greased cookie sheet.
  • Bake cookies 10-12 minutes, NO MORE.
  • *Cookies may seem undercooked but will develop.
  • Don't roll your dough into too big of a ball; they may not turn out in that much time if you do that.
