My husband grew up attending a Moravian Church, a wonderful little country church actually. And there was a delicious cookie that my mother-in-law made and still makes every Christmas: Moravian Sugan Cookies. You can even buy these pre packaged someplaces, but the ones she makes are thicker and much tastier if you ask me. They quickly became my favorite Christmas cookies.


1/2 cup butter
1 cup sugar
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp vanilla
1/4 tsp salt
1 egg
1 1/4 cups flour
1/4 cup sugar
2 tsp cinnamon

Preheat oven to 350°F.
Soften butter with sugar, baking powder, vanilla and salt. Blend in egg and flour.

Grease or butter 2 cookie sheets well. Spread half of the dough out on each cookie sheet to make a 10x8 inch rectangle (one for each sheet).

Mix together ingredients for topping and sprinkle evenly over the dough.

Bake at 350°F for 12 to 15 minutes, or until golden brown along the edges. Allow to cool 2 minutes, then cut into 2 inch squares. Cool on wire racks.

Makes about 40.
