Ingredients

  • 1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon cream of tartar
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup butter, softened
  • 1 tablespoon corn syrup
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 large egg
  • 3 tablespoons sugar
  • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • Cooking spray

Preparation

  1. Preheat oven to 375°.
  2. Lightly spoon flour into a dry measuring cup; level with a knife. Combine flour, baking soda, and cream of tartar, stirring with a whisk.
  3. Combine 1 cup of sugar and butter in a large bowl, and beat with a mixer at medium speed until well blended. Add the corn syrup, vanilla, and egg; beat well. Gradually add the flour mixture to the sugar mixture, beating just until combined. Cover and chill for 10 minutes.
  4. Combine 3 tablespoons sugar and cinnamon, stirring with a whisk.
  5. With moist hands, shape dough into 42 (1-inch) balls. Roll balls in sugar mixture. Place balls 2 inches apart onto baking sheets coated with cooking spray.
