2 ¾ cups of all-purpose flour
½ teaspoon cream of tarter
½ teaspoon baking soda
½ teaspoon of salt
¼ teaspoon of ground cinnamon
¼ teaspoon of ground nutmeg
1 ¾ cups of sugar, divided
½ cup of unsalted butter, softened
1 large egg, room temperature
½ teaspoon vanilla extract
¾ cup apple butter
2 tablespoons ground cinnamon
Whisk together flour, cream of tartar, baking soda, salt, ¼ teaspoon cinnamon, and nutmeg in a medium sized bowl until combined.
Combine butter and 1 ½ cups sugar in a large bowl. Stir in egg and vanilla until blended. Add apple butter and mix until combined. Pour in ½ of the dry ingredients and mix until just combined. Add remaining dry ingredients and mix until there are no dry clumps of flour remaining.
Cover and refrigerate for at least 2 hours, or up to 24 hours.
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Line 2 baking sheet pans with parchment paper.
Mix together remaining ¼ cup sugar and 2 tablespoons of cinnamon in a shallow bowl. Drop tablespoon-sized pieces of dough into the cinnamon-sugar mixture and coat them well. Place 1 inch apart on prepared baking sheets.
Bake in preheated oven for about 10 minutes. Allow cookies to cool on baking sheets for 5 minutes before removing to a wire rack to cool completely.
