Ingredients
  1. 1 cup butter, softened
  2. 1 cup sugar
  3. 1 1/2 cups light brown sugar, divided
  4. 4 eggs, room temperature
  5. 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  6. 3 cups all-purpose flour
  7. 2 teaspoons baking powder
  8. 1 teaspoon salt
  9. 2 cups Greek yogurt
  10. 2 teaspoons cinnamon
  11. Confectioner's sugar, for dusting
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350 F.
  2. In a large bowl, cream the butter, sugar, and 1 cup of brown sugar until smooth and fluffy.
  3. Add the eggs one at a time, mixing well after each addition. Stir in the vanilla extract.
  4. In a separate bowl combine the flour, baking powder, and salt.
  5. Slowly add the dry ingredients to the wet, alternating with the yogurt, stirring just enough until the batter is smooth.
  6. In a separate bowl, combine the cinnamon with the remaining brown sugar until well combined.
