Everyone once in awhile I just need to either find something to entertain Brookland or put her down to nap a little earlier so Austin and I can do something together. One thing that it still just for Austin is baking. Brookland isn’t quite old enough to help. Today we made some of Austin’s favorite cookies – cinnamon cookies.
Simple, and get this: low in calories! Makes me feel a little less guilty as I am stuffing my face full of them.
Cream sugar, eggs and oil together. Adding the vanilla, baking powder and cinnamon. Gradually add in the floor.
I admit, this is one cookie dough that I’m not sneaking pieces. It’s not the 3 eggs in it – I’ve eaten a lot of cookie dough without problems. This one doesn’t taste so good. *Insert sad face.*
Don’t they look great? Can’t even tell that they are burnt, unless you look too close at the bottom edge. I just can not make great cookies, the only ones I don’t burn are our thumb print cookies. I also tend to get distracted by cleaning up our mess, and forget to set the timer which never helps.
These are great cookies for a picnic, they travel great, we take these on road trips for the kids to have for snacking.
