    Cinnamon Grinch Cookies Recipe

    Cinnamon Grinch Cookies Recipe

    I associate cinnamon with the Christmas holiday. I also love watching and reading The Grinch with my kiddos. I have previously made vanilla-flavored Grinch cookies. I also make a sinfully cinnamon cookie. This year I decided to create a new Grinch cookie recipe with a cinnamon flavor. The outside is perfectly crisp while the inside is slightly chewy with a light vanilla-cinnamon taste.

    Ingredients

    • 1 of cup white sugar, plus extra
    • 1⁄2 cup of butter
    • 1 large egg
    • 1 teaspoon of vanilla
    • 1/2 teaspoon of green food coloring
    • 1 1⁄2 cups of all-purpose flour
    • 2 teaspoons of cinnamon
    • 1 teaspoon of baking powder
    • 1⁄4 teaspoon of salt
    • cinnamon heart candies

    Directions

    1. Preheat the oven to 350°.
    2. Cream together the sugar and butter.
    3. Add the egg, vanilla, and green food coloring to the butter mixture. Mix thoroughly.
    4. Combine the flour, cinnamon, baking powder, and salt.
    5. Slowly add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients.
    6. Shape the cookie dough into 1-inch balls.
    7. Roll the cookie dough balls in the extra sugar.
    8. Place the sugared cookie dough balls on a parchment-lined cookie sheet.
    9. Bake for 8 to 10 minutes.
    10. Remove from the oven.
    11. Immediately press a cinnamon heart candy onto each cookie.
    12. Allow the cookies to cool slightly before removing from the cookie sheet.
    13. Store the cinnamon Grinch cookies in an airtight container.
