These delicately spiced cookies are perfect by the pool (or the fireside), and are sure to please.
For about 1 dozen, you'll need:
+ butter, 1 stick, softened
+ sugar, 1/2 cup
+ ground cinnamon, 1 teaspoon
+ salt, 1 pinch
+ baking powder, 1 teaspoon
+ 1 egg
+ flour, 1 1/2 cups + extra for dusting
+ white chocolate, 1 bar
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper; set aside.
Cream together the butter, sugar, cinnamon, salt and baking powder. Add the egg; beat until fully incorporated. Gradually add the flour until mixture is thick and smooth.
Lightly dust hard surface; roll dough into a sheet about 1/4" thick. Cut cookies using a glass (or your favorite cookie cutter), and transfer to baking sheet. Bake for 8 minutes; cool completely.
Place cookies on fresh parchment paper or on a cooling rack over parchment paper. Melt the chocolate in a double boiler (or in the microwave, stirring between 10-second bursts). Use a spoon to slowly drizzle chocolate over cookies. Rest for at least 3 hours, or until chocolate hardens and loses its shine. Dig in!
