This is the same recipe as the one in Betty Crocker's 1960's classic "Cooky Book," the same one my mother had as a teenager and that I baked from in the 80's. My 6-year-old picked these out for us to make together today. I'd rate them five-stars on the nostalgia value alone, but they turned out to be delicious, slightly chewy with crisp edges, just as I remembered. The only thing I might do differently next time is add a bit of vanilla to the cake dough when I mix in the eggs, no more than 1/2 tsp should do the trick to make the dough a bit richer. My daughter loved them, too, and had fun rolling out the balls and rolling them around in the cinnamon-sugar!
