Happy Cinco de Mayo everyone!  I had plans to make a unique dessert to celebrate, however after having four sick kids at home this week, my plans had to change.  I needed to make something that didn’t require a lot of time and this recipe definitely doesn’t.  These cookies taste like shortbread and snicker doodles rolled into one!  They melt in your mouth and taste delicious.  I look forward to making these a lot more!

Ingredients are as follows:

1/2 C powdered sugar
1/2 tsp. cinnamon
1 C butter (no substitutes), softened
1/2 C powdered sugar
1 tsp. vanilla
3/4 tsp. cinnamon
1/4 tsp. salt
1 1/2 C flour 
1 Tbsp. granulated sugar 
Directions:
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Mix together the powdered sugar and cinnamon; set aside.
Cream together the butter, powdered sugar and vanilla.
Add the cinnamon, salt and flour.  Mix until incorporated.
Take a spoonful of dough and roll it into a ball.
Roll into the powdered sugar/cinnamon mixture.
Place onto an ungreased cookie sheet.

 

Bake for 16-18 minutes; until golden brown around the edges.

 

 

I had some leftover powdered sugar mixture (and I hate to waste) so I stirred in a tablespoon of granulated sugar and rolled the warm cookies into it.

 

 

Take a bite and enjoy!
