How to make cinnamon cookies.

Cinnamon sprinkle: combine cinnamon with crystal and brown sugar in a bowl.

Put soft butter, a pinch of salt, crystal and brown sugar into a bowl. Rub for 3-4 minutes to allow the butter integrate slightly with the sugar. Then add egg, sifted flour, cinnamon, baking soda and baking powder. Mix the ingredients, then quickly knead the dough. Divide the dough into balls of about 30 grams each. Coat each ball with the sprinkle and place them on a baking tray lined with baking paper. Next, gently flatten the cookie balls with your hand so that each ball has a diameter of about 5 centimetres. Put the tray in an oven preheated to 180 degrees Celsius for 15 minutes. Once baked, remove the cookies from the oven and let them set aside for at least 10 minutes to cool.

Good to know when making cinnamon cookies.

When placing the cookies on a baking try, keep a fairly big distance between them. During baking, the size of the cookies will increase and if they are placed too close to each other, they will stick together and you don’t want that.

The cookies should be ready after 15 minutes. However, if you see that they are still not slightly golden on the top, leave them for an additional 2 minutes. It really depends on the oven you have at home. In mine, the cookies were baked in 15 minutes.

From the given amount of ingredients I got 24 cookies.
