Recipe for Cinnamon Balls


    Cinnamon Balls

    1 cup butter, softened
    1/5 cup granulated sugar
    2 teaspoons vanilla extract
    1 teaspoon cinnamon
    2 cups cake flour
    2 cups corn flakes, finely crushed (measure first, then crush)
    1 cup chopped nuts
    Confectioners' sugar or cinnamon sugar*

    Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

    Beat butter and sugar. Add vanilla extract and cinnamon. Mix in flour and corn flakes, blending thoroughly. Stir in nuts.

    Roll into 1-inch balls and place on lightly greased cookie sheets. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes, until firm and golden.

    Roll in confectioners' sugar while still hot.

    * For different tastes, try rolling half the cookies in confectioners' sugar and the other half in granulated sugar to which you've added some cinnamon.
