mixing dry inggredients for cookies

Add baking soda, baking powder, and cinnamon and mix.
Begin adding half of the flour and salt and blending.
At this point, I like to stop using a hand mixer and switch to a mixing spoon, as the dough gets thick and has a tendency to clump on the beaters. Stir in the remaining flour.

mixing cookie dough
Stick the dough into the freezer for 10 minutes to allow it to cool and rest.
While the dough is chilling, preheat the oven to 375.
In a small mixing bowl add all of the streusel topping ingredients and stir them up.
Pull the dough out of the freezer and form small balls of dough with a cookie scoop.
