Delicious and easy to prepare cookies with a great flavor: Cinnamon Crinkle Cookies.
5 oz. (140g) butter
1 cup (200g) sugar
1/4 cup (50g) brown sugar
2 medium eggs
1 tsp. vanilla extract
2 1/2 cups (325g) all-purpose flour
1 tsp. baking powder
1 1/2 tsp. ground cinnamon
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 cup (70g) confectioners’ sugar
1. Add the butter to a small saucepan and bring to a boil. Cook over medium heat until it smells kind of “nutty” and you can see small dark spots on the bottom of the pan. Be careful, the butter might be bubbling a lot. Move from the heat and let cool down a bit.
2. Add the sugars to a large bowl and mix until combined. Add the cooled butter and mix until well combined. Add the eggs one after another and mix until light and fluffy. Add the vanilla extract and mix in. Mix the flour with baking powder, cinnamon, and salt and gradually add to the bowl and mix in. Do not overmix. Place the dough in the fridge for about 1 hour.
3. Preheat the oven to 350°F (180°C). Line a baking sheet with baking parchment and set aside. Make small balls (about 1 tablespoon) out of the dough. Add the confectioners’ sugar to a small bowl and roll the balls in it until completely covered. Place on the baking sheet with some space in between. Bake for 12-14 minutes. Take out of the oven and let cool down on the baking sheet for some time, then remove and let cool down completely on a wire rack. Repeat with the remaining dough – you should get about 30 cookies.
