  • 1/2 cup butter softened
  • 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/3 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon cornstarch
  • 1 1/2 cups flour

Cinnamon Sugar Coating

  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon


  • 3/4 cup butter softened
  • 3 cups powdered sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 tablespoon ground cinnamon
  • 1-3 tablespoons milk as needed


  • Preheat oven to 350°F. Line cookie sheets with parchment paper.
  • Cream together butter, brown sugar, and 1/3 cup of sugar until fluffy. Add the egg and vanilla and mix until combined.
  • Add the baking soda, salt, and cornstarch and beat, then slowly add flour until just combined.
  • If dough is too soft to handle, chill for at least 15 minutes.
  • In a small bowl, combine 1/4 cup of sugar and 1 teaspoon cinnamon.
  • Using a small cookie sheet, roll cookies into balls and then roll in the cinnamon sugar mixture. Set on cookie sheet.
  • Bake for 10-13 minutes, until the edges are light golden brown. Cool completely while making frosting.
  • For the frosting, beat the butter with an electric mixer until smooth. Slowly add in powdered sugar until combined, then add salt, vanilla, and cinnamon. Add milk 1 tablespoon at a time until it's smooth and reaches your desired consistency.
  • Either pipe or spread frosting on cooled cookies and enjoy!
