Cinnamon cookie01

Delicious teaside treat for cold London days. We tried Cafe Rengigül’s cinnamon cookie recipe first time when we were preparing christmas hampers for our neighbours in 2011. Since then we didn’t make.

Yesterday, we wanted something sweet for our tea time but we used last granulated sugar for something else few days ago.  Nearby supermarkets sell only cane sugar and for not going to farther one to buy beetroot sugar in this freezing day, we were searching our recipe file for another option.

Then we remembered these cinnamon cookies made by confectioner’s sugar and suddenly, super easy, five minutes make/half an hour bake cookies were  ready to eat!  Here is the english recipe:

2 egg yolks

150 g butter

285 g flour

65 g confectioner’s sugar

1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

10 g baking powder

5 g vanilin sugar

for sifting on the top

confectioner’s sugar and ground cinnamon

Mix egg yolks, confectioner’s sugar and butter.

Add sifted flour, ground cinnamon, baking powder, vanilin sugar and knead all together. It will be a no sticky, compact dough.

Take small wallnut size pieces and make small balls. Place them in a tray covered by grease proof baking paper.

Bake 30 minutes at 190°C in preheated owen. (Do not let them golden brown)

When the cookies get cold, sift the confectioner’s sugar and ground cinnamon mix on the top.

And eat and eat and eat…
