I love baking. I have been promising my husband these cookies for over a year now. After a long awaited wait I finally made him the cookies. It was his birthday and I wanted to give him some of his favorite treats. He also got the best strawberry shortcake with homemade whip cream. I went all out for him.
I forgot how yummy these cookies make your house smell like warm cinnamon while baking away in the kitchen. Maybe just maybe I will have to make these more often, who doesn’t like warm cookies straight from the oven. I know we do. Enjoy.
