Blogmas Day 9 | Cinnamon Cookies Recipe


Welcome to day 9 of Blogmas! I hope you are liking my posts so far! As it is December and food is always a key for Christmas, I thought I would show you how to make cinnamon cookies! I love doing these and they also go down a treat! Now I got this recipe a few different ones and trial and tested my own recipe to get it right and have used it when making these cookies and they came out amazing! This recipe serves 24 but you can double it if you wish to make fewer!

I normally make these in the few days before Christmas because there is nothing better than curling up on the sofa, a Christmas movie on and some Cinnamon cookies to nibble on!

Prep: 20 min  Cooking: 15 min  Decorating: 15 min     Overall: 50 minutes


  • 75g (2.5 oz) self-rising flour
  • 150g (2.5 oz) plain flour
  • 1-1.5 teaspoons ground cinnamon (depending if you want a strong cinnamon taste)
  • 62.5g (2.25 oz) butter
  • 50g (1.8 oz) sugar
  • 1/2 to 1 egg beaten (make sure it doesn’t make the dough too sticky by adding 1 egg)
  • 150g (5.2oz) Royal icing sugar
  • Decorations to go on top of the icing
  • 2 teaspoons milk
  • 2 teaspoons golden syrup
  • 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • food colouring (optional)


  1. Set the oven to 160° or Gas Mark 3
  2. Put the cinnamon into a large bowl with the flour (sifted)
  3. Grab another bowl and put the butter, sugar and mix until smooth
  4. Add the egg to the butter and sugar and mix well
  5. Mix in the dry ingredients until you have a firm dough
  6. Put flour on the counter and roll out the dough making sure it is thin and even
  7. Cut the dough into shapes and places on a greased baking tray
  8. Put in the oven and bake until golden brown (10-15 minutes)
  9. Let cool and harden
  10. In a small bowl, mix together icing sugar and milk until smooth
  11. Beat in syrup and vanilla extract until icing is smooth and glossy. If icing is too thick, add more golden syrup
  12. Put the icing on the cookies, add edible decorations and leave to set
