  3. Add the egg, egg yolk, and vanilla extract. Beat on medium-high speed until combined. Scrape down the sides and up the bottom of the bowl with a rubber spatula as needed.

  4. With the mixer running on low speed, slowly add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients in 3 different parts. The dough will be thick.

  5. Roll cookie dough into balls, about 1½ tablespoons of cookie dough each. Roll the dough balls in cinnamon-sugar topping.

  7. Bake cookies for 10 minutes. The cookies will be very puffy and soft. When they are still very warm, lightly press down on them with the back of a spoon or fork to help flatten them out.

  9. Serve and enjoy!
