Ingredients

for the cookies

  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, room temperature
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/3 cup light brown sugar
  • 1 large egg + 1 egg yolk, room temperature
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon cream of tartar
  • 1 tablespoon greek yogurt
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 1/4 cups all purpose flour

for the cinnamon sugar

  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 2 tablespoons ground cinnamon
  • pinch of salt

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350Β°F. Prepare a baking sheet with either parchment paper or oil. Set aside.
  2. In the bowl of stand mixer fitted with the whisk attachment, combine the softened butter, granulated sugar, and brown sugar and beat until light and fluffy, about 3 minutes. Add in the egg and egg yolk, whisking until the mixture turns slightly lighter in color. Add the greek yogurt and vanilla extract and mix until combined.
  3. In a separate bowl combine the salt, baking soda, cream of tartar, and flour. Stir together the dry ingredients and then add to the wet ingredients. Mix until just combined. The mixture will be wet, but this is totally normal. Cover the dough and place it in the fridge for 30 minutes to chill!
  4. Combine sugar, cinnamon and salt in a small bowl. Roll 2-3 tablespoons of batter into a ball, then dip completely in cinnamon sugar. Place on prepared baking sheet, leaving at least 1.5 inches between each cookie. Repeat with remaining cookies.
  5. Bake for 12-14 minutes, until the cookies have started to wrinkle but are still pale in color (NOT golden brown!). Remove from oven and let sit on baking sheet for 10 minutes (they will continue to cook as they cool). Enjoy with a glass of cold milk!
