These glazed cinnamon cookies are delicious little bites of yum!
I got in the habit of baking cookies (almost) every week for a couple of reasons.
First off, it’s so easy to make cookies at home that it’s nearly offensive to think buying them from the grocery store is easier.
You just can’t.
And, so I bake cookies.
Like this week’s variety…
I used baking powder in this recipe, which means the cookies stayed close to their original dough drop shape, rather than spreading out on the baking sheet.
They’re dense, but still fluffy inside, and the glaze that’s drizzled on after they’ve just been pulled out of the oven adds a slight sweetness that’s perfect with the not-too-sweet cookie dough.
I know what you’re thinking: Two tablespoons of cinnamon seems like a lot.
I’ve found that cinnamon flavor kinda gets lost unless you’re serious about adding plenty, so in this case, two works.
Maybe I’d even consider adding more…
- 1 stick salted butter, room temp
- 1 large egg
- 3/4 cup granulated sugar
- 2 tablespoons ground cinnamon
- 1/2 teaspoon cardamom
- 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
- 1-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon salt

- 3 tablespoons powdered sugar
- 1 tablespoon milk
For the glaze:
- Mix the powdered sugar and milk together in a small bowl.
