Cinnamon Cookies (by Cooking Light for dressbarn)
For rolled cookie dough:
10 ½ tablespoons of powdered sugar or 6 tablespoons of granulated sugar
⅓ cup butter, softened
2 tablespoons light brown sugar
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 large egg
2½ cups all-purpose flour
¼ cup cornstarch
½ teaspoon baking powder
¼ teaspoon baking soda
¼ teaspoon salt
½ teaspoon ground cinnamon
For cinnamon glaze:
⅔ cup powdered sugar
2 teaspoons milk or water
¼ - ½ teaspoon ground cinnamon
2 tablespoons sliced almonds
1. Place sugar, butter, light brown sugar and vanilla extract in a large bowl; beat with a mixer at medium speed until well blended (about 4-5 minutes). Add egg, beating well after addition.
2. Combine the flour, cornstarch, baking powder, baking soda, salt and ground cinnamon and sift. Add to butter mixture; stir until combined. Divide dough into 4 equal portions. Roll each portion to a ¼ inch thickness between 2 sheets of plastic wrap. Freeze dough 20 minutes, or 2hours in the refrigerator. I left it refrigerated over night.
3. Preheat oven to 375°F (190°C). Working with one portion of dough at a time (keep remaining dough in freezer or refrigerator), remove top sheet of plastic wrap, cut dough with a 2-inch round cookie cutter; place cookies on baking sheets. Discard bottom sheet of plastic wrap. Repeat procedure with remaining dough.
4. Bake at for 8 minutes or until lightly browned. Remove from baking sheet; cool on a wire rack. Combine powdered sugar, milk and cinnamon; drizzle mixture over cookies. Sprinkle with almonds.
a)You could use a fork, pastry sleeve or bottle with nozzle to drizzle glaze on the cookies. I used a sleeve.
b) If you want to thicken a little more the icing add one teaspoon of icing sugar at a time or to dilute it add water or milk by drops until the desired consistency is obtained.
