These warm cookies have a nice smoky taste.
For the Cookies
- 1/2 c. salted butter, softened
- 1 c. dark brown sugar
- 2 large eggs, room temperature
- 1 tsp. vanilla extract
- 1 tsp. orange zest
- 1 tsp. orange juice
- 1 tsp. kosher salt
- 1 tsp. baking soda
- 1 tsp. smoked cinnamon
- 1 tsp. ground cinnamon
- 2 c. all-purpose flour
For the Sugar Mixture
Yields Approximately 2 Dozen Cookies
- 1/4 c. granulated sugar
- 1/4 tsp. kosher salt
- 2 tsp. smoked cinnamon
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Cream the butter and brown sugar until light and fluffy. Scrape the bowl, then add the eggs and beat to combine. Add the vanilla extract, orange zest, and orange juice and mix until combined.
In a bowl, sift together the salt, baking soda, cinnamon, and flour. Add the mixture to the wet ingredients a little at a time, stirring after each addition.
Using tablespoon-sized scoops of dough, roll each scoop in the sugar mixture and place onto a parchment paper-lined baking sheet. Lightly flatten each dough ball and sprinkle with additional sugar mix if desired.
Bake for 10-12 minutes until lightly firm to the touch.
