Cinnamon Tea Cookies

Pin It

 

Here is another fun little cookie to add to your favorites!  It is great as part of a holiday gift platter or anytime.

There are 4 teaspoons of cinnamon in a batch that makes about 50 cookies.  It seems like the cinnamon flavor would be stronger but it’s not.  If you really love cinnamon you might even want to add a little more!  They are really nice this way though.

These cookies are light and they almost melt in your mouth.  The nuts on the top provide a nice crunch at the end.

I topped half of this batch with chopped almonds (the cookies on the right in the photo with the blue plate) and half with pecans (the ones on the left).  Both were great and I can’t really choose between them!

To “stick” the chopped almonds to the cookies before they are baked you just dip the top in beaten egg whites first.

This recipe is another one that I made years ago, but just recently converted to gluten free.  If you are not bothered by gluten, you can just use “regular” flour in place of the GF Mix.

I shared this recipe with Slightly Indulgent Tuesday at Simply Sugar And Gluten Free, Tasty Tuesdays at 33 Shades Of Green, Full Plate Thursdays at Miz Helen’s Country Cottage, Simple Lives Thursday at A Little Bit Of Spain In Iowa, Pennywise Platter Thursday at The Nourishing Gourmet, Monday Mania at The Healthy Home Economist, Hearth And Soul Hop at A Moderate Life, Mouthwatering Monday at A Southern Fairytale, Homemaker Monday at 11th Heaven’s Homemaking Haven, Tuesday Night Supper Club at Fudge Ripple, Gluten Free Wednesdays at The Gluten Free Homemaker, Real Food Wednesday at Kelly The Kitchen Kop
