For the Cinnamon Lover in All of Us

Since taking over the holiday baking duties for our family (as explained here) I've added several new cookies to the mix. The cinnamon cookies below are my husband's favorite. They go especially well with espresso. I'm submitting these to Eat Christmas Cookies event sponsored by Foodblogga.
