Buttery goodness, wrapped in sugar and cinnamon. These are a crowd pleasing cookie amongst adults and children alike.
“Cinnamon. It should be on tables at restaurants along with salt and pepper. Anytime anyone says, “Oh This is so good. What’s in it?” The answer invariably comes back, “Cinnamon”. “Cinnamon”. Again and again.” — Jerry Seinfeld
1 cup Margarine
1 1/2 cups Granulated Sugar
1/4 cup Corn Starch
6 tbsp Applesauce
2 1/2 cups All-Purpose Flour
1 tsp Cream of Tartar
2 tsp Baking Soda
2 tbsp Granulated Sugar
2 tsp Cinnamon
Pre-heat oven to 400°F.
Cream margarine and 1 1/2 cups of sugar. Beat in corn starch and then applesauce (it’s important that the corn starch is incorporated first).
In a second bowl, stir together flour, cream of tartar, and baking soda. Blend into margarine mixture.
Stir together the remaining sugar and cinnamon. Shape dough into 1 to 2 inch balls (I use a tablespoon as a measure), roll in cinnamon mixture to coat, place on an ungreased cookie sheet, and gently press balls so they are about 2/3 of their original height. Bake for 7-8 minutes. Transfer to cooling rack.
