step-by-step directions
  • Preheat oven to 350ºF. Combine flour, baking soda, salt and cinnamon. Set aside. Melt 2 ounces butter in microwaveable dish. Set aside.
  • In a stand mixer, cream 6 ounces of cold butter and both sugars until butter is incorporated, being sure not to overmix.

  • Place dough in zip top bag and roll 3/4 - 1 inch flat. Chill the dough until firm. Cut the dough into 1/2 inch strips, then 1 inch pieces. Stand the portioned pieces up, on their side, on a parchment lined sheet pan. Bake for 7 to 8 minutes or until the cookies are slightly brown around the edges. Cool slightly on rack. Serve warm.
  • Helpful Tips:
    1. Freezing the dough ensures the ingredients bind together well.
    2. Laying out dough in cubes on a sheet pan ensures a cookie with a gooey center.
