There is something about Cinnamon Butter drop cookies that I love. Well, not something, everything.

Cinnamon Butter Cookie Recipe

Since I was a child around 11 years old, I had my first cookbook from Better Homes and Gardens. Red, white checkerboard hard copy.

 The pages are dirty and worn now and did I ever get my use of it. I made just about everything in that book.

This is an adapted recipe from there.

They used shortening instead of butter in their recipe. I find that shortening came out more like shortbread and biscuit tasting.

I really love this recipe and it's so easy. Drop the dough on the cookie sheet and bake, cool then dust with powdered sugar!
