Young Emily brought a tin of these delicious little cookies when she came to hang out with my dogs after school on Wednesday, and — love anything with cinnamon — of course, I just had to get the recipe.

Be warned, these cookies may be habit-forming!

Cinnamon Cookies

1 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup butter
1 egg
1/3 cup milk
2 ¼ cups flour
4 level tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp vanilla

Pre-heat oven to 350°F.

Cream the sugar and butter, then beat in the egg and milk.
Mix together the flour, baking powder, and salt, then blend into the creamed mixture.
Stir in the vanilla.
Make the dough into small balls (about the size of a whole walnut).

In a small bowl, combine:
      ½ cup brown sugar
      ½ tsp cinnamon (or a bit more, if you like cinnamon as much as I do!)

Roll the cookie balls in the cinnamon-sugar mixture.
Place on a lightly greased baking sheet.
Bake at 350°F for 8 – 10 minutes.
