Cinnamon Butter Cookies

As he was shoving two of these cookies in his mouth, I think I heard my husband say that they would be good with ice cream.  I personally can picture them with hot chocolate.  But since it's 10 billion degrees in Florida right now, I would be insane to try out this hypothesis.  Maybe I should go the ice cream route.

What you will need:
1 1/2 cups of pastry flour ( or cake flour )
1/2 teaspoon of baking powder
2 teaspoons of ground cinnamon
1 stick of unsalted butter, softened
1/2 cup of granulated sugar
1/2 cup of packed brown sugar
1 egg
1 1/2 teaspoons of vanilla
1/2 teaspoon of salt

1/8 cup of granulated sugar
1 teaspoon of ground cinnamon

The main star of the cookie

and its supporting cast

Start off by mixing your topping.  Set the bowl aside for use later.

Measure out your flour, baking powder, and cinnamon and throw them in a bowl together.  Stir them up and set the bowl aside.

Cream the butter, granulated sugar, and brown sugar together until fluffy.  Add in the egg.  Once the egg is mixed in, add in the vanilla and salt.  Slowly add in the flour mixture.  The dough will be super thick.

Once the dough is mixed, drop onto a cookie sheet covered with parchment paper.  Flatten the dough with the bottom of a small glass.  You may have to cover the glass with a little powdered sugar first so the dough doesn't stick too much.  Don't worry...the sugar will disappear.

Once the cookies are flattened, sprinkle on the topping you mixed earlier.

Bake in an oven set at 400 degrees for 8-10 minutes.  And as summer is coming into full swing, take my husband's mumbled suggestion and try them with some ice cream.
