Some of you are beginning to wonder if I make anything other than deserts around my house, the answer is yes. I'm going to try posting to other categories more, it will be hard but I will try! I quite enjoy these cookies. When I volunteered to make these for the kids in our ward going on the "trek" this next week I thought not only would they travel well and taste great, but they would add a little variety to the mix. This recipe comes from Gale Gand from Food Network.

For the topping:
3 TBS sugar
1/2 tsp cinnamon

For the cookie dough:
3 1/2 c flour
1 TBS baking powder
2 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp cinnamon
1 c butter
2 c sugar
2 eggs
1 TBS light corn syrup
2 1/2 tsp vanilla extract

In a small bowl, stir the sugar and cinnamon and set aside.
To make the cough, stir together the dry ingredients.
Cream together butter and sugar, then add the eggs, corn syrup, and vanilla, and mix thoroughly. Add the dry ingredients and mix until blended. Chill dough 1 hour if it's sticky or difficult to handle.
Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
Roll balls of dough about the size of a walnut then roll them in the cinnamon sugar to coat. Place on an un-greased cookie sheet 2 1/2 in. apart. Bake for 10 to 12 min. until puffed up and the surface is slightly cracked. Let cool on pan a few minutes before removing to a wire rack to cool.
