  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 tablespoon half and half

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon

Step 2

ADD sugar, baking powder, and salt. Beat until combined, scraping sides of bowl occasionally. Beat in egg, half and half, and vanilla until combined.

Step 3

ADD flour and cinnamon to the mixer slowly. Make sure dough is evenly mixed.

Step 4

WRAP dough in Reynolds® Parchment Paper and place in a sealed plastic bag; refrigerate until chilled, about 1 hour.

Step 6

CUT dough with 2-inch cookie cutters and place on parchment-lined cookie sheets about 1 inch apart.
