  • 1 c unsalted butter , room temperature
  • 3/4 c confectioners' sugar
  • 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2.25 c all-purpose flour


  • Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or silicone baking mat. Set aside.
  • In a large mixing bowl, combine butter and sugar and mix with electric mixer until fluffy, about 2 minutes.
  • Add cinnamon and vanilla and mix until combined.
  • Add flour and mix. The dough will look crumbly but it will come together.
  • Divide the dough in half, wrap each half in waxed paper, flatten into a disk and refrigerate for at least 1 hour.
  • Preheat oven to 300 degrees F.
  • Unwrap each disk and place on lightly floured surface. Roll out into 1/4 inch thick circle. Cut out cookies. Place them on prepared baking sheet.
  • Bake cookies for 24 to 28 minutes, or until they start to brown on the edges.
  • Cool on sheet for 2 minutes, transfer onto a wire rack to cool completely.
