makes about 50 cookies
2 3/4 cups all purpose flour
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1 cup (2 sticks) butter, room temperature
1 1/2 cups sugar
2 large eggs, room temperature
4 tbsp sugar
4 tsp cinnamon
- Sift together flour, baking soda and salt into a small bowl. Put butter and sugar into a large bowl and beat on medium speed until pale and fluffy, about 3 minutes. Mix in eggs. Reduce speed to low; gradually add in flour mixture. Cover bowl and chill for 30 minutes.
- Stir together sugar and cinnamon in a small bowl; set aside. Flour work surface and roll dough into a large square 1/4" thick. Cover the entire top of dough with cinnamon-sugar mixture. Take edge furthest away from you and carefully roll dough on top of itself towards you. Once dough is completely rolled, roll the log of dough back and forth to seal the edges. Cut dough in half and wrap each half tightly in plastic wrap. Chill for at least 1 hour.
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line cookie sheets with parchment paper or Silpats. Cut dough into slices 1/4" thick and space 1" apart on prepared cookie sheets. Bake, rotating halfway through, 10 minutes, or until edges are golden brown. Let cool on sheet for 3 minutes and then transfer to wire racks to completely cool.
