There are many reasons why I absolutely adore these cookies. One batch makes a ton of cookies (75 sticks). They remind me of really good shortbread cookies. They taste FABULOUS dipped in coffee. I could have a few right now! I'm planning on making some for an upcoming party with a chocolate fondue. OH YEAH!
Cinnamon Stick Cookies
3 1/2 cups flour
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp cinnamon
1 cup butter, softened
1 cup sugar
1 cup packed brown sugar
1 cup powdered sugar
In a stand mixer, combine butter, sugar, brown sugar, and eggs until creamy. Mix flour, baking soda, and cinnamon in a medium bowl until well combined. Gradually add dry ingredients to sugar mixture. Line a loaf pan with plastic wrap and press cookie dough into pan. Try to be as even as possible. Refrigerate 1 hour until firm. Remove cookie dough from loaf pan using plastic wrap to lift.
Slice cookie dough in 1/2 inch slices. Then cut each slice into 1/2 inch strips.
Lay strips on GREASED cookie sheets about 1/2 inch apart. Bake until lightly browned at 325 for 11-13 minutes. Cool on wire racks. While cookies are cooling, mix powdered sugar and 2 tablespoons milk. Keep thinning out with milk until icing easily slides off a spoon. Drizzle icing over cookies.
