This has become a favorite of my family. My dad would rather have these cookies than a birthday gift. We double the cinnamon and also add a bit of cinnamon to the sugar the cookies are rolled in. Be sure to cook them until just barely starting to brown on the edges and they will be perfect. A little crisp on the edge with a chewy center. YUM!
This recipe is very easy, and the raw sugar adds a nice crunch to the cookie. I gave these to co-workers and family at Christmas, and they all loved them.
I served these at a dinner party as dessert after Chinese food. My guests loved them. They were so perfectly round they looked like slice and bake cookies and they were soft and slightly chewy too. I made the dough on a Sunday and chilled it until I baked the cookies on Wednesday, which worked fine. I also used light corn syrup because I didn't have dark and regular sugar because I didn't have natural sugar. No problems with these substitutions.
