  • 1/2 cup butter softened
  • 8 ounces cream cheese softened
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 1/2 cups granulated sugar
  • 1 tsp cinnamon plus an extra 3/4 tsp for rolling
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tablespoon + 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 2 1/2 cups flour
  • 1/3 cup powdered sugar for rolling


  1. Using a hand mixer, combine butter, cream cheese, egg, and vanilla. Add sugar, and continue mixing.
  2. Add cinnamon, salt, baking powder, and flour, and mix completely. Dough should be soft and not too sticky.
  3. Add powdered sugar and 3/4 tsp cinnamon to a small bowl.  Roll cookie dough into balls slightly larger than 1 inch in diameter, and coat in cinnamon sugar mixture.
  4. Bake at 350 for 10-14 minutes.  Tops of cookies should crack.  Once removed from oven, allow cookies to remain on baking sheet for another 3-4 minutes to finish cooking.
