Calories: 141kcal


  • 1/4 cup butter (softened)
  • 6 TBS sugar
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 1/4 tsp vanilla
  • 12 TBS flour
  • 1/4 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp cream of tartar
  • 1 TBS sugar
  • 1/4 tsp cinnamon


  • Preheat your oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Line a baking pan with parchment paper, or a silicone liner.
  • Cream together butter and sugar until mixed well and light and fluffy.
  • Add the egg yolk and vanilla and mix it in.
  • Add in the flour, baking soda, cream of tartar, and salt and stir it together until you have a nice and soft dough.
  • Combine sugar and cinnamon in a small bowl to create the cinnamon sugar topping.
  • Roll the cookie dough into 8 even balls. Roll each ball in the cinnamon sugar.
  • Place cookie dough balls onto the prepared cookie sheet a couple inches apart.
  • Bake the cookies for 9-11 minutes, until the cookies are golden, tops are set, and the tops are crackly.
  • Remove the pan from oven and let the cookies cool for about 5 minutes on the cookie sheet. Then transfer the cookies to a cooling rack.
  • Let them cool completely, or enjoy them warm.
