  • 1 cup butter softened
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 cup brown sugar packed
  • 2 eggs
  • 3 1/2 cups flour
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 4 tbsp milk


  1. In a stand mixer, combine butter, sugar, brown sugar, and eggs until creamy.

  2. Mix flour, baking soda, and cinnamon in a medium bowl until well combined. Gradually add dry ingredients to sugar mixture.

  3. 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.

  4. 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 (about 4 per slice). Lay strips on GREASED cookie sheets about 1/2 inch apart.

  5. Bake until lightly browned at 325 for 11-13 minutes. Cool on wire racks.

  6. 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.
