Cinnamon Cookies

Good Morning and Happy Sunday! I hope you all are having a wonderful holiday season! If you love cutout cookies but want something a little different, look no further! I just added some cinnamon to a butter cookie base, but you’re welcome to add more festive spices to your liking. You can enjoy these cookies plain, with gobs of frosting, or a nice layer of chocolate ganache.

Dorothy’s Test Kitchen


1 cup butter, softened

3/4 cup sugar

1 egg

1 and 1/2 tsp vanilla

3 cups flour

1 tsp baking powder

1 tsp cinnamon

1/2 tsp salt


Preheat your oven to 400 degrees.
Cream together the butter and sugar until well blended. Add in the eggs and vanilla and mix until just combined, or for about a minute or two. Stir in the dry ingredients and add it to the wet batter and work with your hands if you need to. Wrap up the dough and let it chill for about an hour. If you need to, it can be left in there for a day. Once you’re ready to roll, take the dough out and warm it up a little by rolling it around. Make sure to flour your surface, cookie cutters, your rolling pin, and dough before rolling them out. Roll the dough to desired thickness and carefully cut and place the dough on a lined cookie sheet. Bake for about 8-10 minutes. Let cool completely before you decorate any which way you please.

  1. These sound really yummy! I’m officially home for holiday break, and I really want to start baking again. For Christmas, my family always makes classic butter cut out cookies for Santa, but they can get old, so the I really like the idea of adding cinnamon to the dough. Great idea 🙂
