I originally found this recipe on the blog Bake or Break. She had adapted it from a Nigella Lawson recipe. The cookie comes out more cake-like and definitely isn't chewy. But the nutmeg adds special flavor, especially around the holidays.

Directions

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line or grease baking sheets and set aside.

Combine flour, nutmeg, baking powder, and salt. Set aside.

Beat butter and 1/3 C. sugar until creamy. Add egg and vanilla. Stir in dry ingredients until smooth and just combined. Do not over-stir or the dough will become crumbly.

Mix together cinnamon and 2 Tbs. of sugar. Pinch dough into walnut-sized pieces and roll into balls. Roll each ball in cinnamon/sugar mixture, and place on baking sheets.

Bake for 12 to 15 minutes, or until golden brown. Cool on baking sheets for one minute, then cool completely on a wire rack.

  • I am so excited that I found this recipe - from the picture they look just like the ones i learned to bake in middle school (soooo many years ago) :) - all the recipes i've found turn into flat cookies, these look like they hold their shape, which they are supposed to. I can't wait to try this recipe later today - will let you know!! (i keep the nutmeg out myself too - don't care for it...they are better without). THANK YOU!
