Cinnamon Cookies

This is 1 of my favourite cookie recipes. It comes from Julia Parsons book A slice of Cherry Pie.

100g softened butter,
100g caster sugar.
1 large egg.
250g plain flour..
1 teaspoon cinnamon.

Oven 180C, Fan 160C, Gas mark 4.

 Cream the butter and the sugar together until light and fluffy.
 Add the egg a bit at a time until all mixed in.
Sieve in the flour and cinnamon and mix by hand to form a dough.

 Wrap in cling film and chill in the fridge for at least a half an hour.

Roll out on a well floured surface. it is a sticky dough. and cut to whatever shape you like.

Bake for 10 minutes, they should be golden around the edges.

Leave to cool.


 Roll out the Fondant icing and cut out with the same cookie cutter you used for the dough.

 Wet the back if the icing and stick to the cookie. Making a total mess of the kitchen is optional but fun.

Add sparkles and glitter.



  1. These look amazing - I'd never thought of adding icing like this before. Will give it a go!
    Have a very happy Christmas with lots of festive foody treats! Best wishes to you and your family.
