Prep: 15 min
Bake: 10 min
Yield: 36 cookies
  • 3/4 cup – unsalted butter
  • 1-1/2 cups plus 3 Tbsp. – granulated sugar, divided
  • 2 – large eggs
  • 2 teaspoons – vanilla extract
  • 3 cups – Swans Down Cake Flour
  • 2 teaspoons – cream of tartar
  • 1 teaspoon – baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon – salt
  • 1 tablespoon – ground cinnamon

Preheat oven to 350°. Line 3 baking sheets with parchment paper.

In a large bowl, beat butter and 1½ cups sugar with a mixer at medium speed until fluffy, 3 to 4 minutes, stopping to scrape sides of bowl. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Beat in vanilla.

In a medium bowl, whisk together Swans Down® Cake Flour, cream of tartar, baking soda, and salt. Gradually add flour mixture to butter mixture, beating until combined.

In a small bowl, stir together cinnamon and remaining 3 tablespoons sugar. Using a 1-inch spring-loaded ice cream scoop, scoop dough into mounds. Roll each mound into a ball, and roll balls in cinnamon-sugar mixture, coating completely. Place 2 inches apart on prepared pans.

Bake until edges are just beginning to brown, 8 to 10 minutes. Let cool on pans for 5 minutes. Remove from pans, and let cool completely on wire racks.

    I made these cookies today. They were simply amazing. However, the timing was off. I needed to add an additional 5 minutes.

  • anne says:

    What size is a 1″ scoop? The one I have is a #40 and the cookies took about twice as long to bake as suggested (my oven runs cools so I usually have to turn it up a little higher but never such a large discrepancy.)

    • Swans Down says:

      Hi Anne, A 1″ scoop would be considered a #100, and holds approx 2 teaspoons of batter. A #40 holds approx 1.5 tablespoons of batter. This is likely the reason your cookies required twice the baking time. We hope they were delicious. Happy baking!
