Recipe Notes

To freeze for make-ahead cookies, roll dough into balls and freeze in an airtight container. Don’t roll dough balls in cinnamon-sugar mixture until ready to bake. Recipe easily doubles.


For the cookies:

1/4 cup unsalted butter, room temperature

1/2 cup brown sugar, packed

1/2 cup granulated sugar

1 large egg

1 cup all-purpose flour

1 tsp. baking powder

For the cinnamon sugar:

Savory Spice ingredients in this recipe


For the cookies: Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a large bowl, combine butter and sugars. Using a stiff spatula, stir and paddle the ingredients until uniformly combined. Add egg and whisk rapidly until combined into butter mixture. In a small bowl, combine flour, baking powder and a three-finger pinch of salt. Fold flour mixture, in a few batches, into butter until mixture completely incorporated.

For the cinnamon sugar: In a small, shallow bowl, stir together Vanilla Bean Sugar and Supreme Saigon Cinnamon for a homemade cinnamon sugar, or use our Cinnamon Sugar blend.

To bake the cookies:Scoop out tablespoons of the dough, roll them in the cinnamon sugar and place them about 3 inches apart on a baking sheet. If you want them uniform, press each one down with a flat-bottomed pint glass or measuring cup. Bake until cooked through and edges are golden, 10 to 15 min. Sprinkle with more cinnamon sugar as they cool, if desired.
