1¼ c. plus 2 Tbs. all-purpose flour
¼ c. plus 3 Tbs. sugar
1 tsp. cream of tartar
½ tsp. baking powder
Pinch of coarse salt
8 Tbs. (1 stick) unsalted butter, at room temperature
1 large egg
Nonstick cooking spray
1 Tbs. ground cinnamon


Preheat the oven to 350°F. Put the flour, ¼ cup plus 2 tablespoons of the sugar, cream of tartar, baking powder and salt in a bowl and mix together. Put the butter in a large bowl and beat on high with an electric mixer until the butter is light in color and fluffy. Reduce the speed of the mixer, add the egg and beat until incorporated. Add the dry ingredients to the bowl and beat on medium speed until a dough forms. Spray a large baking sheet with nonstick spray. Shape the dough into balls about the size of a chestnut and arrange them on the baking sheet about 1 inch apart. Mix the remaining 1 tablespoon of sugar and the cinnamon together in a small bowl. Lightly sprinkle the sugar mixture over the balls of dough. Bake the cookies until the balls flatten a bit and turn nicely golden, about 20 minutes. Using a spatula, transfer the cookies to a wire rack to cool. Enjoy the cookies after cooling or store them in an airtight container at room temperature for up to four days.
