  • 4 oz unsalted butter - softened
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar - divided
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1 1/3 cup all purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 2 teaspoon cinnamon - divided


  • Measure out 3/4 cup of sugar and set aside 2 tablespoon for the topping.
  • Add the remaining sugar and softened butter to a medium mixing bowl and beat with the paddle attachment until combined and fluffy, about 1 minute.
  • Add egg and vanilla to the sugar and beat for another minute until thoroughly combined.
  • In a small bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, salt and 1 teaspoon of cinnamon until evenly distributed.
  • With the mixer on low speed, add the flour and mix until just combined.
  • Scrape the side and bottom of bowl to ensure everything is well mixed.
  • Allow the dough to rest in the refrigerator for 10 minutes while you preheat the oven to 375°F.
  • Mix the 2 tablespoon of sugar set aside earlier with 1 teaspoon of cinnamon in a shallow dish for topping.
  • Take the dough out of the fridge and divide with a small ice cream scoop, roll the dough in the palm of your hand to form 1 1/2” balls. This will yield about 14 balls.
  • Roll each dough ball entirely in cinnamon sugar and set the dough balls on a parchment line baking sheet about 2” apart. Don’t flatten them.
  • Bake for 10 minutes.
  • Allow them to cool on the baking sheet for 5 minutes before transferring them to a wire rack to cool completely.
