    These look fantastic! you have cinnamon listed twice. Does it go in with the dry ingredients as well as on the outside?

      Yes, thank you for catching that! It goes in the cookies, and it is mixed with the powdered sugar to roll the cookies in. I made the corrections to the recipe, so it should be good now. Thanks again!! =)

    I have an old recipe, a clipping from Gourmet magazine that I cut out maybe 15 years ago for a chocolate crinkle cookie that is rolled in powdered sugar. It never occurred to me change up the flavor so I am delighted to see your version, Kate. Those babies are beautiful! Pinning on my Recipes to Try board!
