Chill the dough for 1 hour in the refrigerator. Roll the dough into balls about the size of walnuts. Roll the balls in cinnamon and sugar mixture. Place the balls about 3 inches apart on ungreased cookie sheets. Bake at 400 degrees Fahrenheit until center is almost set and cookie appears lightly browned, 6 to 8 minutes. Cookies will puff up at first, then flatten out with a crinkled top.
