Cinnamon-Sugar Sand Dollar Cookies
If you're a coastal dweller, the Sand Dollar Cookie may bring back sweet memories. Akin to a sugar cookie, these delightful bites are subtly spiced by rolling the dough in cinnamon-sugar. How sweet is that?
Good To Know
Cinnamon is made by drying the inner bark of tropical evergreen trees. As it dries, it curls into quills that are cut into sticks or ground into a powder.
Whisk together flour, baking powder, and salt.
Cream butter, powdered sugar, and ½ cup granulated sugar in the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment until light and fluffy, about 5 minutes.
Add eggs and vanilla; beat until combined. Add flour mixture and beat just until combined. Cover dough and chill at least 2 hours, or overnight.
Whisk together remaining ½ cup granulated sugar and cinnamon.
Preheat oven to 350°. Line baking sheets with parchment.
Scoop dough using a #60 scoop (2 tsp.), roll into balls, then roll in cinnamon-sugar to coat.
Place dough balls on prepared baking sheets, press with the bottom of a glass coated with nonstick spray to flatten, then gently press 5 almonds into each.
