Hey - a girl's got to look good!!
I didn't cook dinner tonight because we had to take the Porsche out to dinner (Wine Down Monday @ Firebirds!). I made cookies instead. The cookies were REALLY good. Not too sweet - just right. I loved the addition of the cinnamon chips! I could eat a ton of these puppies!

2 & 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon coarse salt
1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter, softened
1 & 1/2 cups plus 2 tablespoons sugar
2 large eggs
2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
1 bag Cinnamon Chips
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. I n a large bowl, sift together the flour, salt and baking powder and set aside. Add butter and 1 & 1/2 cups sugar to bowl of a stand mixer. Mix at medium speed for about 3 minutes, until light and fluffy. Add in the eggs. Reduce speed to low and add the flour mixture. Stir together the last 2 tablespoons sugar and cinnamon in a small bowl. Shape dough into 20 balls. Then, roll the balls in the cinnamon-sugar mixture. Place on cookie sheets lined with parchment paper about 3 inches apart as cookies will spread.
Bake cookies, rotating sheets halfway through, until edges are golden brown, 12-15 minutes. Let cool on sheets on wire racks. Cookies can be stored between layers of parchment paper in airtight containers at room temperature up to 3 days.
**I used a medium Pampered Chef scoop to make the cookies and got 39 cookies. I baked them for 13 1/2 minutes (my oven is gas and a little slow).**
