How to Make Mexican Cinnamon Cookies


  1. In large bowl, beat butter till fluffy. Add sugar, cinnamon, vanilla, salt and flour. Mix till just combined. Wrap dough and chill till slightly firm.
  2. Shape into 1 inch balls or roll and lightly floured surface and cutout.
    Bake at 350 for about 10 minutes.
  3. Remove to wire rack…while warm sprinkle with cinnamon/sugar mixture. If you made your cookies in 1 inch balls…roll them in the cinnamon/sugar mixture.

    (I use parchment on my cookie sheets, slide it off onto the counter and then sprinkle)

    Let cool.
