I made these yummy cookies last week. Right now we are in the middle of COOKIE SEASON…otherwise known as Christmas season. To someone who loves to bake though it means you can bake as many cookies as you and no one will judge you because everyone will eat them. Maybe it has something to with empty calories. I think that all cookies consumed during the month of December have empty calories. So anyways, LET’S EAT!
These cookies I found from an amazing blogger, Two Peas and their Pod, who came out with a digital cookbook called Cookie Cravings. They make a ton of delicious foods but the writer, Maria, LOVES cookies and surprisingly I do too! (Shocker, I know). Anyways, I recently bought the digital version of Cookie Cravings and their holiday version of Cookie Cravings. This recipe was the first cookie recipe I made from their cookbook and the first cookie recipe of the season. It has also been my favorite recipe so far this season and I plan on making it again soon.
2 3/4 c. all-purpose flour
2 t baking soda
1/2 t salt
1 c. butter at room temperature
1 1/2 c. sugar
1 c. cinnamon chips
3 T sugar (for rolling cookies in)
3 t cinnamon (for rolling cookies in)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
In a large bowl mix flour, baking soda and salt together. In a stand mixer beat the butter and the 1 1/2 cups of sugar together until pale and fluffy, about 3 minutes. Then add the eggs, one at a time. Next add the dry ingredients and then stir in the cinnamon chips.
Stir together the rest of the sugar and cinnamon in a small bowl. Shape dough in ball and roll into cinnamon sugar mixture. Place on baking sheet (sprayed with cookie spray or with parchment paper or with these baking sheets from Williams Sonoma that I love) about 3 inches apart. Bake for about 12 minutes or until the edges are golden brown. Leave on the baking sheet for two minutes then transfer to a cooling rack.
These are easy to make and yummy. Everyone go out and make them out. They are not necessarily “Christmas cookies” but they are delicious. Enjoy!
