It’s already day 4 of Christmas Cookies Week. So far I’ve brought Spiced Christmas Cookies, Nana’s Molasses Cookies and S’mores Drop Cookies.
Today I am sharing these incredible Cinnamon Cookies.
They are a must make every Christmas. They just taste like Christmas, in every single bite.
Why should you make Cinnamon Cookies?
- They are super easy to make, with ingredients you probably already have.
- They taste like Christmas, and make your house smell amazing, plus they are wonderfully soft.
- They are a very popular choice on a holiday platter.
Cinnamon Cookies Ingredients
- Baking Soda
- Vanilla Extract
How do I best store cookies?
Most cookies are best stored in an airtight container and usually last about a week.
Cookie jars are fine if you plan to eat your cookies within a couple of days, but they usually dry out quickly in a jar.
For best results I suggest a tupperware type container with an airtight lid.
Since it’s Christmas week, there lots of recipes to check out!

Cinnamon Cookies Recipe
- 2 cups all purpose flour
- 2 ½ teaspoons ground cinnamon
- 2 teaspoons baking powder
- ¾ cup butter melted and cooled
- 1 cup granulated sugar
- 1 large egg
- ½ teaspoon almond extract
- In a mixing bowl, whisk together the flour, ground cinnamon and baking powder.
- In another bowl, add the cooled butter and sugar and stir to combine.
- Add in the egg and whisk to combine. Stir in the almond extract.
- Add the dry ingredients a little at a time, mixing in between until fully combined.
- Roll the dough into 1" balls and place about 2" apart on a prepared baking sheet.
- Gently press the dough balls down just a little and bake at 325 degrees F for about 9-10 minutes.
- Remove from oven, they will be WAY too soft to move. Gently press the cookies down with a fork or a spoon to create an actual cookie shape.
- Cool on the baking sheet for about 15 minutes and then remove to cooling rack to cool completely.
I absolutely love anything with cinnamon, so I know that these cookies would be a HUGE winner in our house!!!
