Swedish Cinnamon Cookies Recipe

Monday greetings!

My sister, Nancy, has sent in another of her favorite recipes. This one is for easy-to-make cinnamon cookies.

Her photo has me wishing I had a couple of them right now – with a nice hot cup of tea . . .


Swedish Cinnamon Cookies

1 cup margarine or butter
1 cup sugar
1 TBSP molasses
1 tsp baking soda
1 egg yolk
2 cups flour
1 TBSP cinnamon
Sugar to coat cookies b4 baking

Cream the butter and sugar until light and fluffy.

Add the molasses and mix well.

In a small bowl, dissolve the baking soda in the egg yolk, and stir into creamed mixture.

Add the flour and cinnamon and mix well.

Roll the dough into small balls and drop (5 or 6 of them at a time) into a bowl of sugar.

Shake them around to coat and place on a cookie sheet.

Bake at 350 degrees for 12 minutes.


Thanks again, Sis 🙂

  1. O they look sooooo good. I have saved this recipe for another day. My sister sent over a box of chocolates that her bank sent her for Christmas. How much money do you think you have to have before your bank will send you chocolates? Anyway they were wonderful and I think I am going to have to lay off sweets to make up for the calories that were in the couple pieces I ate. I sent them home with the grandbrats. I have no will power.

  2. I loved the grandbrats comment Carol. I hope you make the Cinnamon Cookies soon. They are worth every calorie!

  3. I used your recipe yesterday for a girls night in and dusted the cookies in sugar when done.

    They turned out yummy and the cinnamon flavor really subtle, everyone LOVED them! the plate was empty within minutes 😀

  4. Hi Hamda!
    So very happy that you and your friends enjoyed the cookies.
    My sister (who originally sent the recipe to me) will be delighted as well. 🙂
