1/2 teaspoon salt

Coating: In a small bowl, combine sugar and cinnamon. Roll the cookie dough into small balls the size of walnuts. Next roll each ball in the sugar and cinnamon mixture so it is coated all around. Place the balls 2 inches apart on the prepared cookie sheets. No need to flatten them, they will spread out by themselves.
Bake cookies for 8 to 10 minutes, depending on your oven. Let cool on a rack.
Makes about 3 dozen cookies.
Recipe idea: Serve while still warm, on a plate next to some french vanilla ice cream with caramel topping drizzled on top.
