Cinnamon Sugar Cookies

Its September 1st, the unofficial first day of fall for some.  Time to start packing up the pool gear and start breaking out the rakes.  Before we know it many of us we’ll be hard at work on the weekends raking up leaves.  

Even though it still feels much like summer, and really it still is for a few more weeks but lounging by the pool just doesn’t feel the same once September begins, unless you live in a year round warm climate of course. 

Most kids are back in school and some will be embarking on their first day back after this holiday weekend.   Time to get ready for fall bake sales, kids slumber parties and Friday night football games. 

Here is a great fall cookie recipe to bake and take while enjoy all the beauty that fall has to offer.  These is a cross between a Sugar Cookie and a Snickerdoodle.  I can’t classify these quite as a Snickerdoodle as it doesn’t have as much cinnamon or the cinnamon topping but they are so good. These are soft and chewy, with a hint of cinnamon. If you love sugar cookies and snickerdoodles, give these little cookies a try. Its like having a sugar cookie with a hint of cinnamon, hence the name Cinnamon Sugar Cookies.

  1. I tried these with just about a 1/4 tsp. more cinnamon in the mix, then topped them with a cinnamon/sugar combo just out of the oven. To die for and so great for fall!
