These are the ingredients that we need.

1. To begin, sift together the flour, cinnamon (1 tsp), baking soda and salt. Set aside.

2. Place 1/2 cup (110 grams) of the softened butter, white granulated sugar and 1/4 cup (50 grams) of brown sugar in a stand mixer bowl and beat until light in color. Add in egg yolk, applesauce and vanilla and beat to combine.

3. Using a sturdy spatula or wooden spoon, fold in the flour mixture until just combined. Using your hands, form a dough ball.

4. Place the dough ball on a lightly floured wax (or baking) paper and roll out to about 1/4 inch (0.6 cm) thickness.
