Recipe type: Dessert
  • -Cookie Dough-
  • 1½ cups all purpose flour

  • 2 Tablespoons melted butter
  • ¼ cup all purpose flour
  • ¼ cup brown sugar
  • ½ teaspoon cinnamon
  1. Preheat oven to 375 F. degrees.
  2. Prepare filling in a small bowl by mixing the butter, sugar, and cinnamon together, mix, then add flour and mix together, set aside.
  3. Use an electric mixer to cream brown sugar, sugar & butter.

  5. In a separate bowl mix flour, baking powder and baking soda together. Add to the creamed butter/sugar. Beat with mixer until everything is mixed in.
  6. Scoop by the heaping tablespoon (golf ball sized or 2.5 Tablespoons), then flatten in the palm of your hand to about 3.5" in diameter.
  7. Put about 1 teaspoon of filling into the center and then pinch the edges around it to close it into a rough ball. Now roll into a smooth ball and place on ungreased cookie sheet.

  9. Bake 12-14 minutes or until the edges are just starting to brown.
