Homesteader Cookies

Welcome to the eighth post in my year-long Cookie Series, where I want to bring you a new and delicious cookie recipe every Tuesday of 2015!

I'm typing one-handed right now.

My left hand is very busy, you see. I'm eating a cookie.

I could set the cookie down and just wait until I was done typing, but I'm pretty good at typing one-handed, so there's no need to do that.

So, don't mind me. I'll just be over here, shoving a cookie into my pie hole.




  • 3 cups flour
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1/2 tsp. baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp. cinnamon
  • 1 cup butter (or margarine), melted
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1 egg

  • 2 Tbsp. butter, melted
  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 2-3 Tbsp. warm milk

  1. Mix the flour, salt, baking soda and cinnamon together in a bowl.
  2. Add the butter, brown sugar and egg. Blend well.
  3. Press the dough into a 9-by-9-inch pan. 
  4. Put the pan in the freezer for 30 minutes. 
  5. Take it out of the freezer and cut into 36 pieces (6 squares by 6 squares)
  6. Bake at 375 for 10-12 minutes.
  7. Let the cookie cool. 
  8. Combine all of the frosting ingredients in a bowl and then drizzle the frosting over the cookies.
Note 1: To make the cookies look even prettier, you could sprinkle cinnamon on the cookies after you drizzle the frosting (as shown in the first picture above).

Note 2: You may think, by judging from the first picture, that these cookie are hard. They're not. They're a soft cinnamon cookie.
