Servings 12 cookies


Cookie Dough

  • ½ cup unsalted butter, softened
  • cup sugar
  • cup light brown sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 1 ½ cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp. cream of tartar
  • ¼ tsp. salt
  • ½ tsp. baking soda
  • ¾ tsp. cinnamon

Sugar Coating

  • ¼ cup sugar
  • 1 tsp. cinnamon


  1. Heat oven to 375F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a reusable liner.

  2. Using an electric mixer, cream together the butter and sugars until light and fluffy. Beat in egg and vanilla.

  3. In a separate bowl, mix together the dry ingredients. Mix into the butter mixture until just incorporated.
