Grandma's Recipes One By One!

Cinnamon Sticks

on November 20, 2013

Today’s recipe is another good cookie for this time of year or any time of year.

Cinnamon Sticks are just what the name says – sticks of cookie dough baked and then rolled in cinnamon and sugar.

Notice that this is another recipe that has the “Very Good” tag.

The recipe says that it makes 4 dozen but I’m sure Grandma made them much smaller than I did because I only got 3 dozen from this recipe.

Since they are supposed to be the size of a finger, fingers must have been smaller back then.

Here is the recipe as I made it:

Cinnamon Sticks

1 cup butter (I added another 2 Tablespoons because it was dry and didn’t come together. I’m not sure if that’s because I used all butter and not any shortening.)

2 cups all purpose flour

5 Tablespoons sugar

1 teaspoon vanilla

Cream butter.

Add sugar and flour to the creamed butter.

Roll in strips or balls – strips the size of a finger.

Bake at 375 degrees for 15 minutes or until slightly brown.

Cool very slightly and roll in mixture of 1/2 cup sugar and 2 teaspoons cinnamon.

There were two different temperatures to bake these at. I tried the first pan at 350 degrees and then the second at 375 and I think that was best.


The dough finally came together when I added an extra 2 Tablespoons of softened butter.


They really do look like fingers!


Roll gently in the cinnamon sugar – they’re very tender when warm.


Mmmm! Cinnamon!!

These just melt in your mouth!
