Chewy Cinnamon Cookies

By David J. Stewart

       This is a delicious recipe that my kids love, but it takes about 3 hours to make.  To me, I enjoy cooking long meals.  Society today has become so hectic, with everyone tossing a TV-dinner into the microwave.  There's no love in that!  I enjoy cooking, the longer the better. 


  • 1 cup sugar

  • 1/2 cup butter

  • 1 large egg

  • 1 teaspoon vanilla

  • 1 1/2 cups flour

  • 1 1/2 teaspoons cinnamon

  • 1 teaspoon baking powder

  • 1/4 teaspoon salt

  • cinnamon sugar


In a mixer bowl, cream together sugar and butter; beat in egg and vanilla. Combine flour, cinnamon, baking powder and salt. Add to butter mixture. Blend well. Cover and refrigerate 2 hours or till firm enough to roll into balls. Shape dough into small balls about 3/4-inch in diameter. Roll in cinnamon sugar to coat. Set cookies 1-inch apart on lightly greased cookie sheets. Bake at 350 for 10 minutes or till the edges are lightly browned. Cool slightly on pans, then remove to racks to cool completely.
