Combine 1 tablespoon sugar and cinnamon. Set aside.

In a large bowl, beat butter until light; gradually add ¼ cup sugar, beating until light and fluffy. In a separate bowl, beat egg yolks with an electric mixer until thick and light in color; stir into butter. Add dry ingredients alternately with lemon juice.

In another bowl, using clean beaters, beat egg whites until foamy; gradually add remaining ¼ cup sugar, beating until soft peaks form.
