I recently found this recipe in a book and gave it a try, though I have altered it so it's now mine. :-)

This cookie tastes like a very light, slightly delicate shortbread cookie dipped in cinnamon sugar. They literally melt in your mouth!

I made the batch last night and this morning there are only a few left!
