Cinnamon Butter Cookies Recipe

Cinnamon Butter Spritz

Many, many years ago, (about 25 years ago) I bought two Viennese Classic Cookie Molds so I could make the Cinnamon Butter Cookies.  These trays had two unique shapes, nine cookies each, (times two).  You have to take your time, because you have to press the dough into the mold…bake…then unmold…they are really good.  Or you can use a cookie press…I think EVERYONE has one.  That is what I use now because it goes alot quicker.

Cinnamon Butter Cookies Recipe

Cinnamon Butter

1 cup butter

1 cup sugar

2 large eggs

3 cups flour

4 tsp. cinnamon

Preheat oven to 325F.  Cream butter; add sugar gradually.  Beat until very light and creamy; beat in eggs.  Add flour and cinnamon.  Stir until blended.

Press dough into ungreased mold and prick 3 times with fork (to keep dough from puffing while baking).  Dough should be level with top of mold.  Bake 10 to 15 minutes or until edges are slightly golden.  Remove from molds while hot.

If you can’t fine these pans; buy a Wilton Cookie Press and pick the shape you want (star, Christmas tree, etc.) Fill the press with the dough; then press the dough onto a cookie sheet.  Bake then at 325F. for 8 to 12 minutes.

* You can put ½ cup of finely chopped nuts in the batter (before they are baked).

* After the cookies are done baking and cool a while, I dip half in chocolate, and then I put candy sprinkles on them.
