Categories: Cookies, Holiday


1 c Unsalted butter, softened
1 c Packed brown sugar
1 Egg
1 ts Vanilla
2 tb Ground cinnamon
1/2 ts Salt
2 c All-purpose flour
1 Egg white, beaten

6 tb Butter, cold
3/4 c All-purpose flour
3/4 c Sugar
Colored sugar for garnish

Preparation time: 15 minutes Baking time: 20 to 25 minutes

1. Heat oven to 375 degrees. Grease 15- by 10-inch jelly-roll pan. Cream
butter, sugar, egg and vanilla in mixing bowl. Stir in cinnamon and salt.
Add flour, a little at a time. Blend well. Press into pan to 1/4 -inch
thickness with wax paper.

2. Brush beaten egg white over dough. Combine streusel ingredients in food
processor. Process until butter is evenly blended. Sprinkle streusel over
dough. Bake 20 minutes. Cool on wire rack 15 minutes. Cut into 2- by 1 1/2
~inch bars while still warm.
Note: The test kitchen found that a mixture of ground spices such as
cinnamon, allspice, ginger, cardamom and cloves also works nicely in place
of the cinnamon, and for the holiday season, a sprinkling of colored sugar
before baking brightens up these cookies.
