Thin and chewy brown sugar cookies! Each cookie has a generous amount of cinnamon taste and loads of 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.
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.
Eat Brown Sugar Cookies Instead
You will love how simple these brown sugar cookies are to make! They do use a hefty 1 1/2 cups of brown sugar, which helps keep these cookies soft in the middle and crunchy around the edges! Brown sugar has a wonderfully rich flavor that works nicely with cinnamon. I used light brown sugar, the dark brown sugar will change the flavor and the appearance of this cookie. I also added cinnamon flavored chips (Hershey brand) but butterscotch or even caramel flavored chips would work nicely.
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!
