  • 2 Egg yolks
  • 1 3/4 c All-purpose flour

Similar to the traditional Mexican wedding cookie.

Cream butter, 1/2 cup sugar, and 1 1/2 teaspoons cinnamon in large bowl

mixture and stir until dough forms. Turn out dough onto lightly floured
work surface. Roll dough between palms of hands and work surface to

Preheat oven to 350F. Lightly butter cookie sheets. Cut log into
1/4-inch-thick rounds. Place on prepared cookie sheets, spacing evenly.
Bake until pale golden, about 17 minutes. Transfer to rack and cool
slightly. Mix 1 cup sugar and remaining 2 teaspoons cinnamon in medium
bowl. Add several warm coolies and toss to coat. Transfer to rack. Repeat
with remaining cookies and cinnamon sugar. Cool completely. Store cookies
at room temperature in airtight container.
