Want your house to smell like a million bucks? Have an hour to spare? Just whip up a batch of cinnamon snaps! My dad introduced me to cinnamon snaps last year and I knew right away I needed the recipe so I could make them again. These cookies just ooze “fall”. They bring to mind leaves turning and fires crackling (we don’t have a fireplace) and cookies baking (duh). Suffice it to say they give me a warm fuzzy feeling. Also cinnamon snaps are in the select group of “Jake-approved” treats, so you know they must be good.
A few weeks ago, my father-in-law asked me “Have you ever made cinnamon rolls?” He’s obviously on to me–he knows if he suggests a dessert, I’ll suddenly feel an overwhelming urge to make it. I’ve never made cinnamon rolls. But I love them. What’s not to love? Warm, soft, sweet, covered in icing…it’s the perfect comfort food for a brisk fall morning (or anytime!). We were having dinner at my in-laws’ house the following week, and I was bringing dessert. Why not give cinnamon rolls a try?
