Sometimes, you just want a plain cookie. Nothing too fancy or rich. Just plain. But you know, plain doesn’t ever have to mean boring or tasteless. Plain can be the most amazing thing you’ve tasted, just simple and clean on the palate. These cinnamon coins are all that and more. They are crisp, buttery and there is just enough cinnamon to lend these slice-n-bake cookies a certain depth and heat. And the sparkly sugar rim is just an ingenious way to dress these plain beauties up AND give them a sweet crunch.
The secret to this amazing treat is really its proportions and the quality of ingredients. I mean, you must have figured out that with a recipe as simple as this, its success is really in the details. As with all of Pierre Hermes’ recipes, the proportions given are perfect, so all you have to do is get the best butter, salt and vanilla you can find and follow the directions to a T!
