Cinnamon Sugar Cookies

Are you a fan of cinnamon and sugar? If so, you need to try these delightful treats. We recently added Cinnamon Sugar Cookies to our Christmas cookie distribution for family & friends; they’ve been a huge hit!

Christmas or not, you can enjoy these cookies all year long. They’re relatively easy and quick to make; the waiting game is having to chill the dough – that’s it.

Recipe: Cinnamon Sugar Cookies

Time: 55 minutes (including prep, cooling and baking)
Serves: 12-16 cookies

What you’ll need:

  • 1 3/4 cups flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup butter, melted
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 2 tablespoons milk
  • 2 tablespoons cinnamon + 1/4 cup sugar mixed together in a small bowl
  • sprinkles (optional, I use red for Christmas cookies!)


  • Mix your dry ingredients in a bowl (flour, baking powder, salt, cinnamon) and set aside
  • Cream together butter and sugar using a mixer
  • Add in the egg and vanilla extract and mix until everything is combined
  • Stir in the dry mix until the dough comes together
  • Add in the milk and keep mixing – the dough shouldn’t feel crumby or wet
  • Wrap your dough in plastic wrap and refrigerate for 30 minutes
  • Preheat your oven to 350°F (or 375°F depending on how even your oven is) and line a baking sheet with parchment paper
  • Take your dough out of the fridge, cut and roll into 1-1 1/2 inch balls
    • TIP! I usually scoop with a teaspoon and then roll it into a little ball
  • Roll the ball into the cinnamon-sugar mix and place on your baking sheet
  • Lightly press down on the balls and flatten with a fork to add texture, top with sprinkles (optional)
  • Bake for 10-12 minutes; remove from the oven when they’re still soft and allow them to cool for a couple of minutes on the baking sheet before transferring them to a cookie rack
