Chewy Cinnamon Sugar Cookies

posted in: Cookies, Dessert | 4

I was privileged to be born into such a lively family… It all starts with my Great Grandmother Tillie. Tillie had a modest 2 children, Joey (my grandfather) and Naomi. While Joey had 3 girls, one of them being my mother, Naomi, on the other hand, had 12 children. She was really an honorable lady, check her out! Today I had lunch with Tillie and these are the scrumptious cookies I brought for dessert. I also made a tasty pizza, and I’ll post the dough recipe next because its super simple and extra delicious! I got raving reviews from my grandma, who ended up eating more than I did!!

Ingredients: (Yields about 15 cookies)
1 1/3 cup pastry flour
1/2 tsp Baking soda
1/4 tsp Baking powder
1/4 tsp Salt
3/4 cup Sugar
2 tsp Ground Cinnamon
1/4 tsp Ground Ginger
1/2 cup Softened Butter
1 Egg
1 tsp Vanilla
1 Tbs Cinnamon Sugar or 2 tsp Cinnamon & 1 1/3 Tbs Sugar

Preheat oven to 350F and prepare 2 lined baking sheets. In a large bowl mix flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt.  Beat together butter, sugar, cinnamon and ginger until light and fluffy. Add egg and vanilla. Slowly add in dry ingredients until JUST incorporated. Use a spoon to scoop out cookies 2 inches apart and then sprinkle with cinnamon sugar. Bake for 9-10 minutes. Let cool for a few minutes before transferring to cooling rack! Enjoy with a large glass of milk!

  1. I absolutely LOVE your repices! By the time my allergic daughter is old enough to look at other kids’ baked treats, I’ll be ready and set. ) Can I adapt this recipe for a donut baking pan? I just bought one, and my husband wants it set to use! Thanks again for your blog. I can tell you spent a TON of time on the repices.
