Cinnamon-Sugar Cookies

WebMD Recipe from

Cinnamon-Sugar Cookies

It’s quick and easy to mix together these slice-and-bake cinnamon-sugar cookies whenever you need something sweet. The recipe makes enough dough so you can bake half and put the other half in the freezer—ready to pull out and bake up a few fresh cookies anytime.

This Recipe Is:
Prep: 35 minutes | Total Time: 3 hours
  • 1 1/2   cups
    white whole-wheat flour, (see Tip)
  • 1 1/2   cups
    all-purpose flour
  • 3   teaspoons
    ground cinnamon, divided
  • 1 1/4   teaspoons
    baking powder
  • 1/4   teaspoon
    baking soda
  • 1/4   teaspoon
  • 1   cup plus 1 teaspoon
    sugar, divided
  • 5   tablespoons
    canola oil
  • 4   tablespoons
    unsalted butter, at room temperature
  • 2  
    large eggs
  • 2   teaspoons
    vanilla extract
  1. Whisk white whole-wheat flour, all-purpose flour, 2 teaspoons cinnamon, baking powder, baking soda and salt in a medium bowl.
  2. Beat 1 cup sugar, oil and butter in a mixing bowl with an electric mixer on high until smooth, scraping down the sides. Add eggs and vanilla and beat until smooth, scraping down the sides. Add the flour mixture and mix on low speed until just combined.
  3. Place half the dough on a large piece of plastic wrap and shape into a 10-inch log (it’s OK if it’s not perfectly round). Repeat with the remaining dough. Wrap and freeze until just firm, about 45 minutes. Reroll the logs to make them rounder and return to the freezer until very firm, at least 1 hour more.
  4. Preheat oven to 350°F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicone mat.
  5. Remove one roll of dough at a time from the freezer and let stand at room temperature for 5 minutes. Unwrap the dough and slice crosswise into 1/4-inch-thick rounds, turning the dough a quarter turn after each slice to help keep the cookies round. Place 1/2 inch apart on the prepared baking sheet. If your cookies aren’t as round as you want them to be, shape the dough with your fingers. Combine the remaining 1 teaspoon each cinnamon and sugar in a small bowl and sprinkle each cookie with a little.
  6. Bake 8 minutes for soft cookies or 10 minutes for crisp cookies. Transfer to a wire rack to cool completely. Repeat with the remaining roll of dough, if desired.


Tip: White whole-wheat flour, made from a special variety of white wheat, is light in color and flavor but has the same nutritional properties as regular whole-wheat flour. It is available at large supermarkets, natural-foods stores and online. Store it in the freezer.
