  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Grease cookie sheets.
  2. In a large bowl, cream together the butter or margarine and brown sugar until smooth. Mix in 1 teaspoon of cinnamon, baking powder, egg, and vanilla. Stir in flour by hand using a wooden spoon, as the dough will be stiff.
  3. Roll out tablespoon sized pieces of dough into 6 inch long ropes. Curl up one end slightly to make the head, then curl the rest of the rope towards the head in a spiral shape to make the snail shell. Place cookies 2 inches apart on the prepared cookie sheets. Brush cookies with egg white. Mix together the remaining cinnamon and superfine sugar in a small cup. Sprinkle this over the snails. Use chocolate chips to make eyes on the heads.
  4. Bake cookies for 8 minutes in the preheated oven, or until the bottoms are lightly browned. Let cool on the baking sheet for about 5 minutes before removing to wire racks to cool completely.

These cookies were adorable. I made them at around 2 o'clock and by 5 they were all gone. I increased the cinnamon by fifty percent because a previous reviewer had said they weren't very cinna...

They were OK. the dough was fairly easy to make. I'd suggest mixing in the flour with your hands because it gets hard to stir. The powdered sugar mixture didn't stay on the cookies, and they fel...

We do not bake cookies very often and my son wanted cinnamon cookies. I followed the recipe exactly, they turned out pretty good. I would make some small changes if I make these again. For me ...
