Cinnamon ‘S’ Cookies

This recipe is from Norene Gilletz, THE PLEASURES OF YOUR PROCESSOR BY NORENE GILLETZ, which I use all the time! I have posted several recipes from this book since it is my ‘go-to’ book with good basic a recipes that always work for me.

These cookies are parve, which means dairy free. They are a favourite in our house! I like to have some in my freezer all the time. I have been making them forever…..well at least since this cookbook came out! If you do not have a food processor, make them in your mix master….

Here is the recipe

Cinnamon ‘S’ Cookies


1/2 cup sugar

1 tbsp cinnamon

3 eggs

1 cup brown sugar

3/4 cup oil

3 cups flour

2 tsp baking powder


Preheat oven to 375f

Prepare 3 baking sheets by lining it with parchment paper, if you do not have 3 sheets, use what you have & bake in batches

  1. Mix the sugar & cinnamon together in a bowl or rimmed flat a pie plate,  that will be big enough to roll a cookie in…you will coat the S cookie in this mixture before baking. Set aside  You can mix this in your food processor if you want by putting the sugar & cinnamon in the bowl of your food processor & pulse to mix. Remove from the food processor
  2. Put the eggs, brown sugar & oil in the bowl of the food processor & process for a few seconds until mixed.
  3. Remove the lid & add the flour & baking powder. Norene says to process with pulse just until the flour disappears… not to over-mix
  4. Remove the dough to a bowl or else take the blade out so you don’t cut your fingers…& the blade does not get in your way…
  5. Take a tbsp of cookie dough & roll it into a small log  about 3 inches long… & shape into an ‘S’ or any shape you want really…you can twist it, I have formed into letters when the kids were small… I always make an ‘S’ now
  6. Roll this shaped cookie in the cinnamon sugar mixture
  7. Put the cookies onto the cookie sheet
  8. Bake for 12-15 minutes until brown. Baking time will depend on the size of your cookies so keep an eye on them!
  9. Remove from the cookie sheet with a spatula & cool on a cooling rack.

Many people ask me "how did you do that?" "will you show me how?' So I decided to make a blog about what I cook and bake. I am in no way a professional cook, but I love to feed people and try new things as well as making the "old foods" My friends are wonderful cooks, each with their own 'specialty' and i will be having guest cooks here, showcasing their favourite things to cook as well!! I hope you enjoy this blog and maybe decide to make some of these foods yourself! I am always available to answer any questions you might have about anything you see here. Some of my recipes are unique to me but most are not. They are all recipes I have found in a variety of ways, some are old family recipes that date back decades and some are new ones!
