The holiday season is one special time of the year where I become a COOKIE-MAKING MACHINE! lol

My favorite cookies to bake are always those that have been passed along the GENERATIONS!

These family recipes are truly a TREASURE and they usually come from my own Mom, my Grandma and even some of my Aunts.

They are all FABULOUS bakers and I owe my passion for baking to them 🙂

Today, I am sharing my family’s FAVORITE cinnamon crinkle cookies.

Now, they are NOT much to look at BUT take one bite and you will know why they are the most REQUESTED cookies each year! 😉

MY OTHER RECIPES


They are so SOFT on the inside but they have this AMAZING crispy, crackly, sugary top that just blows me away!

These cookies live up to their name coz they are PACKED with cinnamon.

There is cinnamon IN these cookies and ON these cookies! 😀

One thing that I LOVE about them is that they are made with simple ingredients that you would always have in your pantry.

You WON’T have to go out on a mission, looking for unique ingredients…YAY!

Let me WARN you though => Since these cookies are rolled around in cinnamon sugar, they have a tendency to stick to the cookie pan.

I highly suggest lining your pans with Reynolds Cookie Baking Sheets.

Not even one of my cookies stuck to the sheets… YAY!

These baking sheets are so CONVENIENT to use because they are already pre-cut and they are also STRONG enough to be picked up from the tray and moved onto a cooling rack without tearing.

reynolds campaign 1To make these cinnamon crinkle cookies, you will need the following ingredients:

2 cups flour
1 cup ricotta cheese (full fat)
1/2 cup unsalted butter
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup granulated sugar + 1 cup granulated sugar (for rolling the cookie dough balls)
1 egg
1 tsp baking powder
3 tbsp cinnamon powder

Notes:
My mom always chills this dough before forming balls and baking the cookies. That makes this dough easier to handle. I don’t have the patience to do this. So, I never do it! lol.

And here are the steps:

Step 1:
In a mixing bowl, add butter, granulated sugar and brown sugar.
Cream everything together.

Step 2:
Add the egg and mix until just combined.

Step 3:
Add ricotta cheese and mix until just combined.

Step 4:
Add flour, baking powder and 2 tbsp cinnamon powder.

Step 5:
Mix on low speed until a sticky dough forms.
Do not over-mix or else your cookies will become very hard.

Step 6:
In a flat tray, add 1 cup sugar and 1 tbsp cinnamon powder and mix it all together.
Now, scoop out 1 tbsp of the dough and drop it onto this tray of cinnamon sugar and roll it around into the shape of a ball.

Step 7:
Place these cookie balls on a cookie tray lined with Reynolds baking sheet.
Press the balls with the palm of your hands to flatten them slightly.
Bake at 350 degrees for 12-15 minutes or until the edges are light brown and crispy.
And you are done!

    I love baking with ricotta. These look amazing! Recipes that have been used for generations are always the best.

    How many cookies does this recipe make?

      It depends on how big you roll your balls. I like to make small bite sized cookies. So, i easily get 35. You will probably get 20-23 big ones though. Hop this helps!
