For the cinnamon dough

  • 1 1/2 Cup sugar
  • 1 Cup butter, softened
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 3/4 Cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 Teaspoons cream of tartar
  • 1 1/2 Teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 Teaspoon baking soda

  • 1/2 Teaspoon ground ginger

Directions

For the cinnamon dough

Heat oven to 400 degrees. Line baking sheets with parchment paper; set aside.

Combine all cinnamon dough ingredients in bowl. Beat at low speed, scraping bowl often, until well mixed. Divide dough in 1/2; place into separate bowls. Set aside 1 bowl.

Ginger Shopping Tip

Staples of Asian cuisine such as ginger, daikon, rice vinegar, and spicy chile sauces like Sriracha add bright, fresh flavors without lots of fuss.

Ginger Cooking Tip

Sriracha has good heat but also has flavor - its mild sweetness comes from sun-ripened chile peppers as well as sugar and garlic.
