1 2/3 cup all-purpose flour

1 tbsp freshly grated nutmeg

3/4 tsp baking powder

1/2 cup butter, at room temperature

1/3 cup + 2 tbsp sugar

1 large egg

1 tsp genuine vanilla extract

1tbsp cinnamon

2 baking sheets, lined with parchment

 

What you do:

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.

2. Combine the flour, nutmeg, baking powder, salt and set aside for a moment.

3. In a larger bowl, cream the butter with 1/3 cup sugar until light in texture and pale in color. Then beat in the egg and vanilla.

4. Stir the dry ingredients into the creamy mixture until you have a smooth coherent mixture.

5. Spoon out the remaining sugar and cinnamon onto a plate.

6. With your hands, squeeze out pieces of dough to form cookies that are about the size of a walnut.

7. Bake for about 15 minutes on your prepared baking sheets until they turn a golden brown. Cool on a wire rack for about 1 minute. While they are still warm roll in cinnamon sugar. Transfer back to rack to cool completely. Enjoy!
