This is my original recipe that took me a while to get right. This cookie is NOT a Snicker Doodle! It is a thin, crispy, buttery delight - just like that warm cinnamon toast my grandma used to make for me! Enjoy!

How to Make Grandma's Cinnamon Toast Cookies

Step-by-Step

  1. PREHEAT oven to 375° F.
  2. COMBINE flour and salt in small bowl. Beat butter, granulated sugar, brown sugar, vanilla extract, and 2 T. cinnamon in large mixer bowl until creamy. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Gradually beat in flour mixture. Form rounded tablespoon and roll in Cinnamon/Sugar mixture then move onto ungreased baking sheets. Flatten out slightly with the bottom of a buttered glass.
    *Mixture may need to be refrigerated for about 10 minutes in order to handle with Cinnamon/Sugar mixture.
  3. BAKE for 9 to 11 minutes or until golden brown around the edges and slightly soft in the center (just like your grandma’s cinnamon toast!). Cool on baking sheets for 2 minutes; remove to wire racks to cool completely.
