Cinnamon Shortbread Cookies
I think it turned out really good and it sure makes the house smell good when you're baking them!
For fun, I decorated with powdered sugar buttercream snowflakes...but they are very good without frosting. They would be great half dipped in white chocolate or drizzled with white chocolate too!!! YUM
If you like cinnamon, I hope you give them a chance. Enjoy!

With your hands work dough into a ball. Divide in half and shape each half into a log about 9" long. Wrap in plastic wrap and refrigerate for 2 hours.
Remove one dough log from refrigerator. Slice 1/4" thick and place on prepared cookie sheet. Bake at 350 for 11-13 minutes, until edges JUST barely start turning golden. While first pan is baking, repeat with last dough log.
Remove from oven and let cool on cookie sheets 2 minutes, then remove to racks to cool completely. This cookie will firm/crisp up while cooling.
OR you can dip half in melted white chocolate too!!! Or drizzle with the white chocolate. That would be wonderful!!! :o)
