Cinnamon Sugar Cookie

Have you ever needed a great cookie to go with a fruit dip, something you would serve to company. Instead of graham crackers! I think I have the perfect cookie. Not too sweet, but a lot of warm cinnamon flavor. The molasses gives this cookie a chewy center and great cinnamon color! This cookie is so easy to make, and this recipe makes 36 so definitely enough for a crowd.


  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 1/2 canola oil
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup molasses
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 egg
  • 2&1/4 cup all purpose flour
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp apple pie spice
  • (3 TBSP sugar and 1 tsp cinnamon for rolling cookies in before baking)


In a stand mixer fitted with a paddle attachment, cream butter, oil and sugar together till smooth. Add vanilla, molasses and egg. Mix well. In a separate bowl, combine all the dry ingredients, and whisk together well. Add to the wet ingredients and mix until dough forms. Chill in plastic wrap 30 minutes, dough will be soft.

Preheat oven to 375º

Combine 3 TBSP of sugar and 1 tsp cinnamon in a bowl. Using an 1″ ice cream scoop or cookie scoop, form a ball, and drop into cinnamon sugar and coat all sides, drop onto a parchment lined cookie sheet. Bake for 8-10 minutes. Cookies are great by themselves, and perfect for a fruit dip, or a chocolate fondue! Enjoy!

I have made a “Toffee Crack” dessert dip that goes perfect with this cookie if serving with a dip.

  • 1 block of cream cheese
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1tsp vanilla
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1/2 – 1 package of Heath milk chocolate toffee bits to your liking

Soften cream cheese, and mix well with the sugars, add the toffee bits, and serve with apples, grapes, strawberries and this cookie of course!
