  • Preheat oven to 350°F and line a 9x13 baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • In a medium bowl, whisk the flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and 1 tsp cinnamon. Set aside.
  • In the bowl of stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, place the butter and sugar. Beat on medium-high speed until light and fluffy (about 2-3 minutes).
  • Add half of the cream cheese and beat in on medium speed. Scrape down the sides of the bowl to make sure everything is mixed evenly.
  • Add the remaining cream cheese and cinnamon extract and continue mixing until just combined.
  • Reduce mixer speed to low and gradually add the bowl of dry ingredients. Mix until just combined.

  • Roll each ball in the cinnamon sugar mixture and transfer to the prepared baking sheets. Leave 2 inches of space between each cookie.
  • Bake for 10-12 minutes or until the cookies are lightly golden brown. Let them rest for 5-10 minutes before transferring to a cooling rack.
