3 cups sifted flour
1/2 tsp. salt
1 TBSP cinnamon
1 cup butter (softened)
1 cup white sugar
1 tsp. vanilla
extra white sugar for dipping
In a mixer add butter, 1 cup white sugar--beat. Add eggs--beat. Add vanilla--
beat until creamy. Add salt and cinnamon--beat. Add flour slowly--beat.
Remove bowl from mixer and place it in the refrigerator for 1 hour. After 1
hour, remove mixer bowl from refrigerator. Use your hands and roll dough
into walnut sized balls. Place some extra white sugar in a bowl--roll dough
balls one at a time in the sugar, then place sugar coated dough balls on
greased cookie sheets. Use the bottom of a drinking glass to press down

sticking to the cookies you can spray it with Pam). Repeat with all cookies.
