As soon as the cookies come out of the oven, let them cool for about 5 minutes. If you try to brush them with butter while still hot, the butter will soak in to the cookie and the cinnamon sugar mix won’t stick. Brush the cookies with butter and dip in cinnamon sugar one by one, coating both sides.
