Cinnamon Stars

It is the holidays after all, so here's another cookie recipe I hope you'll try. This was probably the favorite of people who received assorted cookies from me this year. Actually, Cilla chose this recipe and I'm so glad she did!


1 cup butter, softened
2 cups sugar
2 eggs
2-3/4 cups all-purpose flour
1/3 cup ground cinnamon


  1. In a large mixing bowl, cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Combine flour and cinnamon; gradually add to creamed mixture. Cover and refrigerate for 1 hour or until easy to handle.

  2. On a lightly floured surface, roll out to 1/4-in. thickness. Cut with a 2-1/2-in. star-shaped cookie cutter dipped in flour. Place 1 in. apart on ungreased baking sheets.

  3. Bake at 350° for 15-18 minutes or until edges are firm and bottom of cookies are lightly browned. Remove to wire racks to cool.

Yield: 5 dozen.
