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

Today's recipe isabsolutelyperfect 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!

Other recipes that use cinnamon:

We tend to eat a lot of cinnamon at our house. My daughter and I both love buttery cinnamon sugar toast, sprinkle it on top of rice pudding or use it in french toast.

      Brown Sugar and Cinnamon Cookies

      Yield: 36 cookies

      Author: Hot Eats and Cool Reads

      Prep time: 10 MinCook time: 10 MinTotal time: 20 Min


      • 2 cups all purpose flour
      • 2 teaspoons baking soda
      • 1/2 teaspoon salt
      • 3/4 teaspoon cinnamon
      • 1 1/2 sticks butter, room temp (3/4 cup)
      • 1 1/4 cups dark brown sugar
      • 1 large egg


      1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F. Line baking sheets with parchment paper.
      2. In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, salt, baking soda, and cinnamon. Set aside.
      3. Beat butter and sugar until smooth and creamy. Add the egg, beat well. Gradually add flour mixture and beat until mixed.
      4. Use a small cookie scoop to drop tablespoons of dough onto the baking sheets, about 2 inches apart. Bake for 8-10 minutes. Cool on wire racks. Store in an airtight container.


      Most recipe testers loved the recipe as-is, but a few stated it was too salty. The baking soda can be decreased to one teaspoon and if you're using salted butter, you can omit the salt completely.

      You can substitute light brown sugar for dark.

      Dough can be made ahead and refrigerated for up to 24 hours.
