Cinnamon Cuts Recipe

This recipe was handed down from my grandmother on my mother’s side.  I think she may have gotten these from her italian neighbors as they do not appear to be Polish in origin.  These cookies are a must have for us at Christmas.  They make great Christmas gifts and work beautifully when shipping as they are long lasting cookies that can travel well.

This recipe was handed down from my grandmother on my mother's side. I think she may have received this recipe from her Italian neighbors as they do not appear to be Polish in origin.

Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon Butter
  • 1 1/2 cup Sugar
  • 3 Eggs (medium)
  • 3 cups Flour
  • 1 teaspoon Cinnamon (ground)
  • 1 teaspoon Baking Soda
  • 1 tablespoon Water
  • 1/2 cup Raisins
  • 1/2 cup English Walnuts (chopped)

Note

These will keep indefinitely but will harden in about 3 days to be a good dunking cookie. Very similar to biscotti but way more yummy.

Directions

Step 1
Beat sugar, butter and eggs
In mixer, cream butter, sugar and eggs. Dissolve baking soda in water and add to the mixture.

Sift flour with cinnamon and add to the mixture. Mix in raisins and nuts.
Step 3
Spread out onto pan
Roll into long strips about 1 inch thick in a 9 X 13 pan and flatten to about 2 inches in width. Or just spread out as evenly as you can on baking sheet. Bake in a 350 degree oven for 15 minutes. (double batch pictured here in a 1/2 sheet baking pan)
Step 4
Score
Remove from the oven, slice the surface diagonally to score and return to the oven for 15 minutes.
Step 5
Cool and cut
Allow to cool and slice down the diagonal cuts (they will look like biscotti) and dust with powdered sugar.
