Ingredients

  • 1 cup unsalted butter , softened but not melted
  • 1 1/3 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 large egg yolk
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 tsp corn starch
  • 2 tsp cream of tartar
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 3 tbsp granulated sugar
  • 1 tbsp cinnamon

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 350F degrees. Line cookie sheets with parchment paper or silicone baking mats. 
  • In a large bowl beat together the butter and 1 1/3 cup granulated sugar until fluffy. 
  • Beat in the egg, egg yolk and vanilla.
  • In a medium bowl whisk together the flour, corn starch, cream of tartar, baking soda and 1 tsp cinnamon. 
  • Slowly beat the flour mixture into the butter mixture about 1/2 at a time until combined. 
  • On a plate or in a shallow bowl, stir together the 3 tbsp granulated sugar and 1 tbsp cinnamon.
