Thumbprint Cookies, Cinnamon (D/P, TNT)
Source: My OLD Air Force Wives Cookbook from 1965
Yield: 3 dozen

1 cup butter or margarine
5 tbsp. sugar
2 cups flour
1 tsp. vanilla
1/4 tsp. cinnamon
1/3 cup sugar

Cream butter and 5 tbsp. sugar.

Mix in all remaining ingredients except cinnamon and remaining sugar. Roll into small balls and put a thumbprint in each cookie.

Bake at 350° for 15 to 20 minutes. Roll in mixed cinnamon and sugar.

Poster's Notes:
I use 1/4 cup sugar.

I've made these often. They are very easy and good.

I suppose you could put jelly in the thumbprint, but they are quite tasty with just the cinnamon and sugar.
