Recipe adapted from Cooking Light
Serves: 42 cookies
  • 1¾ cups all-purpose flour
  • ½ tsp. baking soda
  • ½ tsp. cream of tartar
  • 1 cup sugar (or sugar substitute)
  • ¼ cup butter, softened
  • 1 Tbsp corn syrup
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
  • 1 large egg
  • 3 Tbsp sugar (or sugar substitute)
  • 2 tsp. ground cinnamon
  • Cooking spray
  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
  2. Lightly spoon flour into a dry measuring cup; level with a knife. Combine flour, baking soda, and cream of tartar, stirring with a whisk.
  3. Combine 1 cup of sugar and butter in a large bowl, and beat with a mixer at medium speed until well blended. Add the corn syrup, vanilla and egg; beat well. Gradually add the flour mixture to the sugar mixture, beating just until combined. Cover and chill for 10 minutes.
  4. Combine 3 Tbsp sugar and cinnamon, stirring with a whisk. With moist hands, shape dough into 42 (1-inch) balls. Roll balls in sugar mixture.
  5. Place balls 2 inches apart onto baking sheets coated with cooking spray. Flatten balls with the bottom of a glass.
  6. Bake at 375 degrees F for 5 minutes (cookies will be slightly soft). Cool on baking sheets for 2 minutes. Remove from pans; cool completely on wire racks. Enjoy!
