  • While the dough is chilling, preheat oven to 350°F and line a large baking sheet with parchment paper. Set aside. Once dough is chilled, combine cinnamon & sugar in a small bowl. Use a large tablespoon to form dough into 18-20 balls and roll each one in the cinnamon sugar topping. Place on cookie sheet and flatten using the bottom of a cup or your hand.
