Hello lovelies!! I hope you're having a great week so far!!

Today's recipe is absolutely perfect for fall.

These Brown Sugar and Cinnamon Cookies are delicious and so, so easy to make.

I first made them for a Habitat for Humanity fundraiser, and then again a couple weeks later for a BBQ. They are so addicting, you'll find yourself craving them long after they're gone! 

Everyone who has taste tested them, raves about them. They are buttery, soft and chewy. My daughter compared them to a snickerdoodle the first time she tried them.

The cinnamon flavor is perfect for this time of the year. It's one of my favorite fall flavors, right along with pumpkin and apple. 

Cinnamon has SO many health benefits too! 

I can't testify those health benefits are still valid with all the butter and sugar in these cookies, but let's roll with it!

Cinnamon is loaded with antioxidants and has anti-inflammatory properties, along with a few other things.

I just love how easy these cookies are to make.

Prep time is minimal and because these cookies are small, you can fit a lot of them on one large baking sheet. 

I can't wait to make them again and try adding some goodies in such as mini chocolate chips or m&m's, nuts or even oatmeal. The possibilities are endless!

  8. I made these today but only made half a batch using a medium egg and they turned out wonderful! They were soft and chewy and not overly sweet. Thank you for such a wonderful but simple recipe that turned out over the top. I'm thinking about making another half batch and adding some raisins to the batter.

  11. Just made these! Only used 1 & 1/2 cup flour and added 1/4 cup oats and 1/4 cup finely chopped walnuts. When they came out I drizzled melted bakers chocolate on it. So perfect!! Just the right amount of sweetness. I may add more cinnamon next time but I’d be happy to make these again!

  13. These cookies are simply amazing. How have I never stumbled upon this recipe until now??? Used my Vietnamese cinnamon from the King Arthur Flour Company, omitted the chips and rolled the tops in holiday sprinkles. Oh my! (And, thank you.)

  14. These were incredibly tasty. I used gluten-free flour and subbed 1/4 cup of applesauce instead of the egg so that my allergy-ridden son could enjoy, and we both loved the results.

    1. Refrigerating the dough beforehand might help with that! Glad you tried them!
