Cinnamon (Or Cardamom) Butter Cookies Recipe @pinch

An extremely easy butter cookie for Christmas. Simple to make, we opted to use cinnamon for the hint of spice. With its unique flavor, cardamom would be delish too. These cookies are flaky, light, crispy, and crunchy with a rich, buttery taste. This is my grandmother's recipe. She made them every Christmas. These little cookies just melt in your mouth!(FYI have Though they look similar to peanut butter cookies, they contain no peanut butter.)

cinnamon (or cardamom) butter cookies
Prep time: Cook time:
Recipe Cuisine: American Recipe Category: Cookies Yield: 6 Servings
Ingredients :
  • 1 cup(s) butter (do not substitute), softened
  • 1 cup(s) all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup(s) powdered sugar
  • 1/2 cup(s) corn starch
  • 1 teaspoon(s) cinnamon (or cardamom)
  • Optional - colored sugar
Intructions :
  • In a large bowl, cream the butter to the consistency of mayonnaise
  • In a separate bowl, mix and sift the flour, powdered sugar, and corn starch
  • Add to the butter mixture, creaming constantly. Add the cinnamon. Chill thoroughly
  • Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F. Roll into small balls, about 1-inch in diameter, and place on cookie sheets. (I use a small Pampered Chef scoop and drop onto parchment-covered cookie sheets.) It can also be used in a pastry tube. For best results, do not use air-bake pans
  • Flatten with the floured tines of a fork. I suggest keeping the dough as cold as possible throughout steps 5 and 6 by working quickly and refrigerating dough when not working with it. Optional: We add colored sugar to the tops, since we make these during the Christmas season, before baking
  • Bake for approximately 20 minutes OR until delicately browned. (For best results, watch them carefully to be certain they are only slightly browned. That's when they have the perfect texture after they cool. Cool on wire racks
  • Enjoy your tender, delicate, subtly flavored little butter cookies!
