How to make Brown Sugar Cinnamon Cookies

These Brown Sugar Cinnamon Cookies taste amazing and are super easy to make. I decided to use my favorite shortbread recipe to make these cinnamon cookies.

I wanted to make a cookie that was egg-free, buttery and delicious. My Shortbread cookie dough was the perfect base for this recipe.

I swapped out the sugar for the Truvia Brown Sugar Blend, added some cinnamon and it made the perfect melt in your mouth cookies. Seriously, you‘ve got to try these cookies. See step by step pictorial below. 

Part 1: Mix all ingredients to form dough

Part 2: Roll out and cut out chilled dough then bake.

Can I make the dough ahead and freeze it?

You can make this cookie dough ahead and store it in the refrigerator for up to 3 days and in the freezer for up to one month.

When ready to use, place frozen cookie dough in the refrigerator overnight to thaw then before rolling it out to cut. Let it sit on the countertop for about 20 mins if it’s still hard. Then roll it out and bake.

How to store these Cinnamon Cookies

A batch of these cookies makes 36 cookies depending on the size cookie cutter used. These never last past a day in my home.

The good news is that you can easily double this recipe or just make some more. These cinnamon cookies keep very well stored in a cookie jar for up to a week.

Truvia Sugar Blends can easily be used instead of sugar for your holiday baking and all year round. Check out the Truvia to Sugar conversion chart here to make it easier for you to incorporate Truvia into your holiday baking. You won’t be disappointed.

Recipes you can use Truvia for this holiday season and beyond.

  • 3 sticks of salted butter

  • Roll out in between two parchment papers
  • Cut out desired shapes with cookie cutters of choice. Transfer to a lined baking sheet and return to the refrigerator.
  • Bring out second chilled dough, Preheat oven to 350F
  • Repeat same process above. Bring out first batch and pop into the preheated oven while you pop second batch into the refrigerator.
  • Bake for cookies for 15-18 mins. When cookies are done, bring out of oven and pop second batch right in and bake for 15-18 mins too.

 These cookies come out soft but harden a bit as it cools. They are soft on the inside with crisp outer edges. I highly recommend you chill the dough it makes it easier to handle.
