2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
Red and green decorator sugars

Immediately cut into 3x1-inch rectangles. Cool completely.

Recipe Comments & Reviews

I LOVE these cookies! Crisp and buttery with great cinnamon taste. It is also quick to put together. The dough can be stiff, you really get a workout spreading it in the pan! Perfect and festive for the holidays.
Easy to make. EVERYONE loved them!
