For cinnamon sugar:
  • 2 tbsp sugar
  • 1 tsp cinnamon powder
  1. Add butter and sugar to a mixing bowl, beat it well until fluffy.

  2. Add cinnamon powder to it, whisk again.Now place a sieve over the mixing bowl , add wheat flour to it.

  3. Whisk again, I used my electric mixer attachment.Add milk 1 to 2 tbsp do not add fully add a tbsp mix then add later if needed. It should gather like a dough.

  4. Bring together with finger tips, do not knead.Cling wrap it and chill the dough for atleast an hour(this is for making the dough firm so that while baking it doesn’t spread).

  5. Meanwhile prepare the sugar cinnamon mixture - add cinnamon powder to sugar and mix it, set aside.

  6. Then on a butter paper, roll out the dough to 1/4 inch thickness, then cut using your favorite shaped cookie cutters.Remove the extras.

  7. Collect the scraps, roll again until you finish the entire dough.If you feel sticky then slightly flour the cookie cutters before using it.Meanwhile preheat the oven at 180 deg C for 10 mins.Line butter paper on the cookie tray and transfer the shaped cookies to the butter paper.Sprinkle cinnamon sugar on top of the cookies. I chilled the cookies at this stage for 10 mins while the oven was preheating.

  8. Once the oven is preheated,bake the cookies at 150 deg C for 18-20 mins.
