We made it back from our Lake of the Ozarks vacation and although we had fun, I am glad to be home. A week was definitely enough nature for this girl! I came home with 35 bug bites, a killer sun burn and a cold that has lingered all week. I’m more of a beach or city vacation kind of person. Although it was nice to not have to worry about straightening my hair or putting on makeup.
I made these cookies before vacation for an amazing treat that I will share with you later this week. You are going to just die when you see what it is. So yummy!
These cookies are soft and chewy with a delicious cinnamon kick. I have a thing for cinnamon so I threw some into the batter rather than just rolling the dough in the cinnamon sugar mixture. I like the extra spicy, sweet kick it gives them, but it’s totally up to you. They come together quickly and easily so they are great to whip up when a sweet tooth craving strikes.
I just can’t wait to share the deliciousness that these helped create!
