Cookies and Treats

How does that cookie jar empty so quickly?   Guess it's time to bake some Cinnamon Sugar Cookies for my little Miss Adison to enjoy!

1/2 c butter, room temp
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp grated lemon rind
1 1/4 c sugar
2 eggs
2 Tbs milk
2 c flour
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
2 Tbs ground cinnamon

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
In a large mixing bowl, cream together butter, salt, lemon rind and 1 c sugar.  Add eggs and milk; mix well.  In a separate bowl, combine flour, baking powder and baking soda and gradually add to the wet mixture; mix well.  Drop mixture onto greased cookie sheets, one round tablespoon at a time, 2 inches apart.  In a small bowl, mix 1/4 c sugar and cinnamon.    Butter the bottom of a glass, dip into cinnamon sugar mixture and flatten one cookie.  Repeat until all cookies are flattened.  Bake 8 to 10 minutes until light golden.  Transfer cookies to wire racks and let cool.
Makes two and a half dozen cookies
