Buttery Cinnamon Cookies

With fall, comes warm rich flavours and I can’t stop thinking about cinnamon. I’m not sure why, maybe I passed a sign on the sidewalk with today’s features and caught a glimpse of the word ‘cinnamon’.  Either way, I  decided to test some shortbread cookies with cinnamon icing for the family this past weekend.  And wow, these buttery shortbread cookies are the perfect fall treat and pair lovely with a hot cup of tea (they just melt in your mouth).

Judging by the reactions and the empty plate, they were a big hit with the family too!

They are a simple shortbread cookie that melts in your mouth and then they are smothered in a cinnamon buttercream icing.
