Nov 13, 2023 | Baking & Bread


Prep Time

Cooking Time

15 minutes
10-12 minutes



– 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
– 3/4 cup unsalted butter, softened
– 1/2 cup granulated sugar
– 1/4 cup brown sugar, packed
– 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
– 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
– 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
– 1/4 teaspoon salt
– 1/4 cup graham cracker crumbs


1. Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or silicone baking mat.

2. In a medium-sized bowl, whisk together the all-purpose flour, ground cinnamon, baking powder, salt, and graham cracker crumbs. Set aside.

3. In a large mixing bowl, cream together the softened unsalted butter, granulated sugar, and brown sugar until smooth and creamy. The mixture should be light and fluffy.

4. Add the vanilla extract to the butter mixture and mix until fully incorporated.

5. Slowly add the dry ingredient mixture to the wet ingredients. Mix until just combined. Do not overmix; otherwise, the cookies may become dense.

6. Form the cookie dough into small balls (approximately 1 tablespoon). Place them on the prepared baking sheet, leaving enough space between each cookie to allow for spreading.

7. Gently press down on each cookie ball with a fork, creating a crisscross pattern. This will not only flatten the cookies but also give them a classic butter cookie appearance.

8. Bake the cookies for 10-12 minutes or until the edges turn golden brown. The centers should still be slightly soft, as they will firm up as they cool.

9. Once baked, remove the cookies from the oven and let them cool on the baking sheet for 5 minutes. Transfer them to a wire rack to cool completely.

10. Once cooled, these crispy butter cookies with a cinnamon graham cracker flavor are ready to captivate your taste buds. Enjoy them with a cup of hot cocoa or crumble them over vanilla ice cream for an extra treat.
