Cinnamon Snaps

We were out of town visiting friends for the Thanksgiving holiday. It was a relaxing and fun time spent with amazing people. During our visit, my friend Madison, my daughter Meg and I decided to bake some cookies. Madison helped gather up all the ingredients and patiently waited for me to take pictures of them. The girls then mixed all the ingredients, rolled the dough into balls, and dipped them into raw sugar before baking them. They turned out perfectly cooked and extremely delicious. They were slightly crisp on the outside but really soft on the inside. They were a huge hit with everyone. Thanks for the great time baking Madison and Meg!

  1. just made these for a holiday gathering and they were delicious! I made them fairly small since there were so many people and used turbinado sugar to roll them in before baking.

  3. These are wonderful. I’m really impressed with how pretty they are. My cookies are never pretty. They taste okay, but they’re wonky looking. These came out round, the sugar was shiny and they tasted wonderful! Wonderful recipe and directions. Thank you!
