  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1 3/4 cups sifted flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder

Cream butter and sugar and stir in well beaten egg. Sift flour and baking powder together, blend with creamed mixture to make a soft dough. Set in refrigerator to chill.

Brush with egg white and sprinkle with cinnamon sugar mixture. Bake on a lightly greased baking sheet at 275° about 20 minutes or until lightly browned.
