Brown Sugar Cinnamon Cookies

Thin and chewy brown sugar cookies!  Each cookie has a generous amount of cinnamon taste and loads of cinnamon chips!

Soft and chewy brown sugar cookies with cinnamon chips!

About two weeks ago I was standing on my driveway talking to a neighbor.  My youngest daughter was circling around us on her little pink bike.  At some point in the conversation, my daughter disappeared.  After a minute or two she reappeared with something in her hands.  She was munching on something as I could see a trail of crumbs on her shirt.  I didn’t really think too much of it, I simply assumed she had helped herself to a granola bar.

Brown sugar cookies have a double dose of cinnamon with the addition of cinnamon chips!

Once she got a little closer I realized that my 5 year old was happily munching on a Milk Bone dog biscuit.   Yes, my friends, you and I  grab pretzels or crackers when we crave something crunchy but not my daughter, she reaches for the dog treats.  In front of my neighbor no less!  The excuses were spilling out of my mouth at that point.  I was afraid he would think I don’t feed my children!  Which of course is a travesty for a food blogger, right?

My face got red, my neighbor chuckled as he inched a few steps away from my daughter.  Then he left, rather hurriedly I thought.   As if strange eating habits were contagious.  I glared at my daughter and her Milk Bone filled mouth and thought “why can’t you eat boogers like a normal kid”?  I quickly erased that notion from my mind, because eating boogers would be gross.  Milk Bones are at least more…fibrous.

At that point I suggested to my daughter that we go inside and bake some cookies!  Forget the Milk Bones.  Brown sugar cookies would certainly be tastier, sweeter, and well….normal.  Little girls eat cookies not dog biscuits!

For now, I think these brown sugar cookies convinced my daughter to change her canine tastes.  These cookies will make anyone change their ways!  They are soft and chewy and have a taste reminiscent of ginger snap cookies.  They are heavy on the cinnamon taste between the ground cinnamon and the cinnamon chips.  They are absolutely perfect for the season!

    Hahahahaha!!! Funny story!! Cookies look yummy!!

  2. Okay, 1) my dad and I used to snack on mini milk bones when I was a kid. I really liked them, I have no idea why. 2) These cookies. OMG! 3) your photos are gorgeous!

    • You did??? Ah so my daughter isn’t unusual! Maybe I’m the one who’s odd? Thanks Dorothy!

  3. Ahahhaha this is hilarious. I’m the oldest of 5 and I think both of my brothers and one of my sisters definitely ate dog FOOD. Not biscuits. Kids are so hilarious and gross. And I think they all eat boogers.
    I totally rocked out these cinnamon chips in a recipe last week! I LOVVVE them! And these cookies are crazy gorgeous! No more Milk Bones for Lucy!

    • I didn’t realize that Lucy is actually normal?? She’s eaten dog food and dog vitamins. She’s an odd one. I love the cinnamon chips too!

  4. OMG…that story is hilarious Tanya! Maybe you should just make some cookies using a dog bone cutter just for her :) The last time that I made homemade dog treats, my friend and I tried them just to see what they taste like. Blah…no sugar, no fun. Kids are so funny!!

    • Lisa, you are onto something there, why didn’t I think of dog bone shaped cookies!

  5. As I lover of Milk Bones myself, I find offense to this post.

    Haha, I’m kidding! But one time, I DID try one. And I have to say, anything would make you stray on ’em, ESPECIALLY these cookies! They definitely don’t have the chewy, brown sugary goodness that these cookies do. Love them!!

    • I have not tried a Milk Bone, but I don’t think I’m going after making these!

    • Thanks Jessica, thats a compliment since you are the cinnamon queen!

  6. Oh Tanya I’m dying over here. He must not have kids if he doesn’t understand! I on the other hand would have grabbed a few of these wonderful cookies!

    • Don’t worry, I grabbed your share!

  7. Such a funny story!! These cookies definitely combine two of my favorite flavors. Can’t wait to make some!

  8. These look perfect, Tanya! Just what I’ve been looking for, I may make them for a Cookie exchange!

    • They are so good, lots of cinnamon flavor! Thanks Paula!

  9. These cookies look perfect, Tanya! And 10 times better than a Milk Bone if you ask me, lol. 😉

    • Thanks you Carrie! I think we’ve kicked the milk bone habit….for now!

  10. I ate dog biscuits as a child. Can’t say they were my favs. They don’t taste THAT good! But question. Is the brown sugar packed? We’re different generation cooks, and back in the day, it was almost always packed. You younger cooks don’t say, so I stay confused. How bout bringing me up to date?

    • Yes ma’am. It is indeed packed brown sugar.

  11. I made a batch and I’m really not sure what went wrong… :( The cookies were almost like lace cookies (so thin) and veeery oily! Any thoughts??? Super good flavor, but…. not at all like the pretty cookies here.

    • Sorry to hear about this Heather. My thoughts: were your pans too warm in between batches? You could try refrigerating the dough for an hour before baking. Also, were your ingredients fresh? Old baking soda can effect the outcome. I hope you try this recipe again.

  12. Hi Tanya, I found your cookies on Pinterest! Love that site. I have made them and we loved them. They are posted and referenced back to your blog. Thank you for a wonderful recipe. Love the story of the dog bones and your little one. Good laugh Andi thewednesdaybaker

    • Thank you for trying and posting them Andi, that is a huge compliment!

  13. Those look delicious, needed a couple new cookie recipes, thank you!! I think I will try your recipe but also try using chopped Heath bar that you can get in the bag instead of the chocolate chips and see how it does.

    thanks again for the recipes.

    • Michael, I think Heath Bits would be very tasty!

  14. Kayla

    Do you have to use cinnamon chips or can you substitute with more ground cinnamon? They look delicious btw…

    • You could certainly add more cinnamon if you’d like. I personally wouldn’t use semi sweet chocolate chips, but white chocolate might taste nice.

  15. Rane

    I stumbled upon this recipe on Pinterest and had to try them. These are so delicious my family and I can’t get enough of them and I think I’ll be making them throughout the holidays!

    • Thank you so much Rane!! These were a huge hit with my family too!

  16. just made these, added walnuts for the Omega 3 benefit and they are divine! I will be making rhese again and again and again….. Thanks!

    • I am THRILLED to hear this! Thank you so much for trying the recipe!
