Autumn Spice Cookies


There is nothing like the smell of cinnamon right out of the oven, especially when
the weather is crisp and cool outside.

And these Autumn Spice Cookies fill the house with a wonderful aroma while baking!
They are easy to bake and very tasty!

 Ingredients:


1-1/2 cups all purpose flour
1/4 cup confectioners sugar
1 teaspoon Cream of Tartar
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 cup light brown sugar, firmly packed
1 egg
1/2 cup salted butter, melted
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/4 cup granulated sugar
1 tablespoon cinnamon
*Icing to outline cookies
Autumn Leaf Cookie Cutter

Preheat oven to 325 degrees.
In a separate bowl, whisk together flour, confectioners sugar, cream of tartar and baking soda; set aside.

In a large bowl, mix egg and brown sugar. Add melted butter. Slowly incorporate flour mixture and add vanilla.  Wrap cookie dough in plastic wrap and chill well for several hours.


Mix the granulated sugar and cinnamon in a small bowl; set aside.


 When dough is firm, roll out on a lightly floured board and cut
cookies using a leaf shaped cutter.


 Place cookies on parchment covered cookie sheet.


 Sprinkle cinnamon/sugar mixture over every cookie.


 Place in preheated 325 degree oven and bake for 9 minutes.
Remove from oven and place on cooling rack. Allow to cool completely.


 *At this point, you can use buttercream icing, royal icing or melted chocolate to outline the leaves.
I used chocolate/caramel buttercream to outline my cookies and it added a
wonderful layer of flavor to the cinnamon cookies.


These are perfect for the holidays or for a special treat when the kids come in from school. 
Enjoy!



Makes 3 dozen 3" leaf cookies.
