  • Add the flour gradually. Beat in with electric mixer unless dough gets too stiff. Stir in by hand if it gets too stiff for the mixer.

  • Form dough into 1-inch balls and then roll in the cinnamon and sugar mixture; place on cookie sheet about 2 inches apart.
  • Bake for 10 to 12 minutes or until the cookies are just starting to brown around edges. Cool on a wire rack.

  • Spread frosting on the cooled cookies and sprinkle the tops with a light dusting of the remaining cinnamon and sugar mixture.

"A nice blend of coffee and Irish cream flavors. We loved them. Of course, my kids thought the frosting was the best part."
