Butter cookies with cinnamon are rolled in cinnamon-sugar mixture before baking.
* 2/3 cup butter
* 1 cup sugar
* 1 egg
* 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
* 1 1/3 cups all-purpose flour
* 1 teaspoon baking powder
* 1 teaspoon cinnamon
* 1/2 cup crushed Cap'n Crunch cereal - original flavor
* 2 tablespoons ground cinnamon
* 2 tablespoons granulated sugar
Cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in egg and vanilla. Sift flour with baking powder and 1 teaspoon cinnamon; add to butter mixture and blend well. Chill dough for 30 minutes. In a wide shallow bowl, combine crushed Cap'n Crunch cereal with 2 tablespoons cinnamon and 2 tablespoons sugar.
Form chilled cinnamon cookie dough into small balls; roll each ball in the cinnamon-sugar-cereal mixture then place on greased and floured cookie sheets (or use silpat sheets) about 2 to 3 inches apart. Bake at 350° for about 10 to 12 minutes. Makes about 36 cinnamon cookies.
