This is one of the few recipes where you really won’t be using a blender that much. It works great at mixing the liquid part, but isn’t necessarily required. I think we can all agree that cookies are enjoyed by everyone in some shape or form. This cinnamon sugar cookie recipe takes a little time to prepare but it’s definitely worth it in the end. Having cinnamon right in the dough helps it have an extra bit of flavor as you’ll see.
The additions and changes you can make vary depending on your taste. Some friends I know add a bit of chopped nuts to the batter. A few spoonfuls of pumpkin purée will give it a holiday themed jolt. Then all you’d have to do is dip the cookies in whipped cream or crushed up over ice cream. The possibilities are endless if you enjoy experimenting in the kitchen. I’d like to also note, you can add a little cream cheese to help keep the cookies soft and moist.
Don’t be afraid to think outside the box when it comes to recipes. It’s okay to jazz it up and make it your own personal creation. As always, it’d be great if you shared your discoveries with the community. Get social and share with everyone on Facebook, Twitter, or whatever else you use. It’s always nice to see more people making homemade meals and treats. Kids will love helping you with these, mainly for the sugar rush.
