  3. Cream together the butter and sugar and add the egg, egg yolk, vanilla and lemon or orange rind. Beat until lilght and fluffy.
  4. Add the sifted ingredients and mix well. Scrape down the sides, cover the bowl with a piece of plastic wrap and refrigerate for 30 minutes.
  5. Mix the cinnamon and sugar together in a amall bowl.
  6. Using a teaspoon, scoop up small amounts of the dough and roll them into balls about 1-inch diameter. Roll the balls in the cinnamon sugar and use enough to fill the prepared bakng sheets, spacing about 2-inches apart.
  7. Slightly flatten the balls and bake for about 12 minutes, or until the cookies are just starting to brown around the edges and slide easily from the baking sheets. Cool on a wire rack. Repeat with the remaining mixture, preparing the sheets as before.
  8. CHEF'S TIP: If you are baking more than one sheet of cookies in a non-convection oven, swap them around halfway through, to make sure they cook evenly.
