Cinnamon sugar cookies

Yield: 48 Servings

Measure Ingredient
2½ cup Flour
½ cup Butter
2½ teaspoon Baking powder
¾ cup Sugar
¼ teaspoon Salt
1 Egg; beaten
⅛ teaspoon Cinnamon
½ cup Buttermilk
Sugar Mixture
½ cup Sugar
1 teaspoon Cinnamon

Mix flour with baking powder, salt and ⅛ teaspoon cinnamon. In another bowl, cream shortening and sugar until light and fluffy. Add egg and beat well. Stir in ⅓ of the flour, then add milk and the remaining flour, mixing between each addition. Don't add more flour, it will make a soft dough that won't be sticky after it is chilled. Chill the dough in the refrigerator for a couple of hours until thoroughly chilled. Take tablespoons of dough and gently shape into balls. Roll the dough balls in the cinnamon/sugar mix and then flatten and place on a greased cookie sheet (the insulated cookie sheets are best...makes perfectly browned bottoms...no burning) and bake at 375 degrees for about 12 minutes. The cookies should be delicately browned.

NOTES : These are soft light little tea cakes, very tasty.
