My take on a comforting classic.
*makes 12 cookies
1 cup + 5 ½ tbsp all purpose flour
¾ cup granulated sugar
1 stick unsalted butter, softened
1 egg, room temperature
1 1/8 tsp baking powder
¼ tsp salt
½ tsp vanilla extract
1 ¼ tsp cinnamon
Cinnamon sugar - ¼ cup sugar + ½ tsp cinnamon
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
In a small bowl, sift together the dry ingredients and set aside.
In another small bowl, combine the ingredients for the cinnamon sugar and set aside.
In a stand mixer fitted with a paddle attachment, cream together the butter and sugar until the mixture is smooth and most of the sugar has dissolved.
When the butter and sugar mixture has come together, add in the egg and vanilla and mix until incorporated.
Once the wet ingredients have come together, add in the dry ingredients and mix until the cookie dough begins to form, being sure to not over-mix.
Using a large tablespoon measure or small ice cream scoop, scoop out the cookie dough and roll it into a ball, then generously toss it into the cinnamon sugar.
Repeat this process until you have 12 balls of cookie dough.
Place them a few inches apart on the baking sheet and bake for 14-16 minutes or until golden brown.
Let cool before serving.
