    Brief Description

    Light, crumbly cookie rolled in cinnamon and sugar.

    Main Ingredient:


    Cuisine:  American

    Prep Time: 10 min
    Cook Time: 6 min


    I have made these as bars as well. Just spread in prepared 9x13 pan and sprinkle with cinnamon and sugar. Will turn out more cakey than when made as cookies.

    Not sure on number of servings when made as individual cookies. It will depend on how big you roll your cookies! Mine tend to be bigger, especially if the kids are rolling them!
