Kids in the Kitchen--Cinnamon Sugarplums

 It's that time of the week.  The time to enjoy a good book and then make a yummy treat.
This week's book is The Cookie-Store Cat. It's the story of a cat that lives in a bakery and enjoys the easy lifestyle that comes from being loved by the bakers and neighborhood children.
There are quite a few recipes in the back of the book.
We made Cinnamon Sugarplums, and they were absolutely delicious...light and fluffy and gobbled up quickly in this house.  This recipe is going into our regular rotation of cookie recipes. 
 2/3 cup butter, soft
3/4 cup sugar
1 tsp. vanilla
1 egg
4 tsp. milk
1 and 1/2 cup flour
1 and 1/2 tsp. baking POWDER
1/4 tsp. salt
cinnamon sugar
 Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.
Cream together the butter, sugar and vanilla
 Add the egg and beat until fluffy.
Luke cracked his first egg and he did a perfect job.
 He wasn't so happy about the egg on his fingers after his great success.
Stir is milk.
 Sift together the flour, baking powder, and salt.  Kim is using a whisk to sift our ingredients. (That's how we sift around here)
Drop by a teaspoon scoop onto your cookie sheet.

 Sprinkle the cookie dough with cinnamon and sugar.
 Bake at 375 degrees for about 10 minutes.
These cookies are delicious...light and fluffy and with the cinnamon and sugar they remind me of snickerdoodles but are  much more soft.
This recipe will need to be doubled the next time we make them, because everyone was home and they were all gone within an hour of baking!
Cay is hosting a Picture Perfect Potluck...sharing picture books and cooking in the kitchen.
Head on over and join the fun.
