Cinnamon Swirl Cookies

These cookies are a favorite of my Grandkids.
They disappear fast.....
This recipe makes 2 doz. cookies.

3 cups flour
1/4 cup salt
4 tsp. baking powder
1/2 cup sugar.

2 eggs at room temperature, beaten
3/4 cup milk at room temperature.
1/2 cup melted butter or margarine cooled.

(Brown Sugar mixture to spread on dough)
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup melted butter or margarine.
3 tbsp. cinnamon


Preheat Oven to 375deg. F.

Make the brown sugar spread mixture 
and refrigerate, to let it thicken,
making it easier to spread.
In a small bowl,
mix together the brown sugar, 
melted butter and cinnamon.
Place in the refrigerator to cool.

In a large bowl, 
Whisk together flour, salt, 
baking powder and sugar.

In a small bowl combine eggs,
 milk and melted butter

 Add  the egg mixture, to the flour mixture.
 Mix all together to make a soft dough.

Knead lightly approx. 10 times.

Roll dough into a rectangular 
shape approx. 12" by 16"

Spread brown sugar mixture over dough.
(I use a spatula to spread it)

My photos are too dark.

Roll up dough as for jelly roll, 
seal edges and slice 

With a 
serrated knife,
slice 1/4-1/2 inch thick. 

Bake in oven 375 degrees for approx. 15-20 mins,
or until they have browned to your liking.
