  • In a separate large bowl, stir together flour, baking powder and salt. Add to butter mixture in thirds, mixing well after each addition.

  • Divide dough into fourths, wrap each piece in plastic and chill, at least 2 hours or up to overnight. Mix remaining 1/4 cup sugar with cinnamon; cover and set aside.

  • Preheat oven to 350°F. Line a large rimmed baking sheet with parchment. Working with one fourth at a time on a lightly floured surface, roll out dough to a little less than 1/4 inch thick. Use a 4-inch, 5-point star-shaped cookie cutter to cut out cookies. Place stars 2 inches apart on cookie sheet; sprinkle with cinnamon-sugar. Bake until cookies spring back slightly when pressed in center, 10 to 12 minutes. Cool on pans on wire racks for 5 minutes; remove cookies to racks to cool completely.
