Everyone gotta have cookies! And my resident "cookie-monster" goes nuts over these. Make plenty to have on hand for lots of cookie-monsters.
Yields 3-1/2 to 4 dozen
Prep.Time: 25 minutes
2 cups Sugar
1 cup Butter -- softened
2 Eggs
2 teaspoons Vanilla Extract
3 cups All-purpose flour
3 teaspoons Cinnamon
2 teaspoons Baking Powder
1 teaspoon grated Lemon Peel, or Lemon Zest
1/2 teaspoon Salt
1/2 cup Sugar
2 teaspoons Cinnamon
In a large mixing bowl, cream together sugar and butter until well-mixed; beat in eggs and vanilla. In another bowl, combine flour, cinnamon, baking powder, lemon peel and salt; add gradually to butter mixture, blending well. Cover dough tightly with plastic wrap; refrigerate 1-1/2 hours, or until firm.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees; combine cinnamon and sugar in a small bowl. Shape dough into balls, about 1" in diameter; roll in cinnamon-sugar to coat. Place cookies on an ungreased cookie sheet 2 inches apart, flattening slightly with fingers. Bake 10-12 minutes, or until edges are lightly browned. Cool slightly on pans, then remove to a wire rack to cool completely. Makes about 4 dozen.
