Oh boy oh boy oh boy! I don’t know how to describe just how amazing these cookies are, but let me tell ya….these go down as a new favorite cookie in my house. They taste like a Cinnabon crashed into a fluffy, moist sugar cookie….and this is the end result!! Or as I described it to my hubby, “a snickerdoodle on steroids” haha!!
Last week, I wanted to play around with making a new cookie recipe for my hubby’s coworkers. After tasting one cookie, I knew these were bound to be a hit with all. I sent three dozen cookies to work with him the next morning and within a few hours, they were gone. Crumbs and all!!! I’d call that a success, right?!?
Hope you enjoy these as much as we all did!!
