Ingredients For Cinnamon Shortbread Cookies Recipe

For the batter

  • 1.5 Cups Unsalted Butter
  • 3 Cups All Purpose Flour
  • 1.5 Cups Powdered Sugar
  • 2 Tablespoons Cornstarch
  • 1 Tablespoon Vanilla Extract
  • 1 Teaspoon Cinnamon Powder
  • 1 Teaspoon Salt

For Topping

  • 2 Tablespoons Granulated Sugar
  • 1/2 Teaspoon Cinnamon Powder

Step By Step Instructions for Cinnamon Shortbread Cookies Recipe

  • Beat the butter, powdered sugar and vanilla extract in a large bowl until the mixture is light and fluffy.
    1.5 Cups Unsalted Butter, 1.5 Cups Powdered Sugar, 1 Tablespoon Vanilla Extract
  • Separately combine the all purpose flour, cornstarch, salt and cinnamon powder.
    3 Cups All Purpose Flour, 2 Tablespoons Cornstarch, 1 Teaspoon Salt, 1 Teaspoon Cinnamon Powder
  • Add this dry mixture to the butter slowly and mix until the dough starts to stay together. You can gently knead the dough using your hand if it's crumbly.
  • Grease any pan of your choice or line it with parchment paper. Turn the dough into the prepared pan and gently press it to form an even layer.
  • Cut the dough into bars, wedges with a knife or into circles using a cookie cutter. Using a fork prick each bar twice at even spacing.
  • Preheat the oven to 150 C or 300 F. Freeze the dough while the oven is heating.
  • Prepare a mixture of granulated sugar and cinnamon. Sprinkle this over the cookies to coat them and gently press it in with your hands.
    2 Tablespoons Granulated Sugar, 1/2 Teaspoon Cinnamon Powder
  • Bake the cookies in the oven for around 25-30 minutes, until they are light golden in color.
  • Cinnamon Shortbread Cookies are ready. Cool them completely on a wire rack before serving.
