Cinnamon Butter Cookies

Staci Cakes

When I roll the cookies in the walnut topping they disappear in minutes. Needless to say the walnut is everyone's favorite!

If you'd like a thicker layer of nuts I recommend whipping up an egg white, dip the dough ball in the egg, drain, then gently press/roll walnuts onto cookie.
