Sugar ’n’ Spice Cookies

These cookies were really easy to make. If you ever plan to make them please use granulated sugar with large granules, for tossing. I didn’t have any at hand but next time, I plan to get some. Have a lovely weekend, ahead!

Beat the butter, sugar, vanilla essence, and egg with an electric hand or stand mixer until soft and creamy. Fold in the flour. It will form a soft dough.

Roll rounded teaspoons of mixture into balls. Toss the balls in the sugar-cinnamon mixture.Place the balls about 1½-inch (5cm) apart on prepared sheets. Flatten the balls with a fork.

Bake about 12 minutes or until lightly browned.

Remove from oven and transfer onto a cooling rack.
