If you didn't grow up with these cookies the name might sound a bit silly. Don't let the name fool you though, these cookies are delicious. A cinnamon and sugar flavored cookies and a definite American classic.
For about 50 cookies:
1 cup softened butter
2 cups and 3 Tbs sugar
1/4 cup milk
1 tsp vanilla
3 3/4 cups flour
1 tsp baking powder
3 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
Preheat the oven to 375 F (180 C)
Beat butter on medium until creamy. Add 2 cups sugar and beat again. Add the eggs, milk and vanilla. Beat everything together.
Add the flour, baking powder and 2 tsp of cinnamon to the mixture. Mix everything on low until blended.
In a small bowl, combine 1 1/2 tsp cinnamon with 3 Tbs of sugar.
Roll the dough into small balls (about 1 1/4 inch in width). This is easiest done with wet hands.
Roll the balls into the cinnamon and sugar mixture and place on an ungreased cookie sheet.
Flatten slightly with the palm of your hand.
Bake for about 13 minutes or until lightly brown.
Let cool on the baking sheet for about 5 minutes and then transfer to a cooling rack to cool completely.
