Ingredients

  • 1 cup butter, softened
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 3 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 3 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons ground cinnamon

Preparation

  1. 1. Preheat oven to 375°. Beat butter at medium speed with an electric mixer until creamy. Gradually add 2 cups sugar, beating well. Add eggs, milk, and vanilla, beating well.
  2. 2. Combine flour, baking powder, and 2 tsp. cinnamon; gradually add to butter mixture, beating at low speed just until blended. (If desired, store dough in an airtight container in refrigerator up to 1 week.)
  3. 3. Combine 3 Tbsp. sugar and 1 1/2 Tbsp. cinnamon in a small bowl. Roll dough into 1 1/4-inch balls, and roll in sugar mixture. Place on ungreased baking sheets, and flatten slightly.
