It’s fall time and getting closer and closer to the Christmas season. Cinnamon just makes me think of fall and winter. I add cinnamon and vanilla to everything, even my coffee. So it is no surprise that I have changed MANY recipes to include more vanilla and cinnamon flavors. This is my variation of Vanilla and Cinnamon cookies.
3 tablespoon cinnamon
1 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup white sugar
1 cup butter, softened
2 tablespoons vanilla extract
2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
3/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
Cinnamon/Sugar in a shaker (no measurement for this)
Preheat oven to 300 degrees F
Grease or flour baking sheet.
Mix brown sugar, butter, cinnamon, and sugar in a large bowl until grainy, it’ll be easier if you can use a mixer. If you can’t use a mixer use a wooden spoon or metal whisk.
Add eggs and vanilla extract, mixing until fluffy.
Add in flour in 1/2 cup at a time while mixing.
Add baking soda and salt and mix again.
Roll dough into balls and flatten in crisscross pattern with a fork on baking sheet
Shake cinnamon/sugar to taste on top of cookies.
Bake for 18 to 20 minutes.
