How to Make Cinnamon Spice Cookies

Step-by-Step

  1. Preheat oven to 300 degrees. Cream butter and sugars. Add the egg yolk and blend well.
  2. Sift flour, salt and cinnamon together. Add to creamed mixture and blend well. Stir in extract and nuts.
  3. Drop the dough by rounded teaspoons onto ungreased cookie sheets, leaving 2" between cookies. Flatten each one slightly. Press a fork, dipped in flour, in a crisscross pattern on top of each cookie.
  4. Bake for 20-25 minutes. Let the cookies cool on the cookie sheet for a few minutes, then transfer to wire racks for cooling. Makes about 4 dozen cookies.
  5. In a large mixing bowl, combine butter, powdered sugar and evaporated milk until smooth and creamy. Add extracts and cinnamon. Mix well. Spread a small amount over the top of each cookie.
