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.
Thanksgiving dessert. Um…YES PLEASE. Oddly enough, I do not like pie. Let me rephrase that—I do not like pie crust. Even if you remove pies from the equation though, Thanksgiving always offers yummy desserts. Since I’m traveling 3½ hours to my brother’s house for the holiday, I am bringing a few desserts that travel well—chocolate chip cookies, cinnamon snaps and Arlene’s Pumpkin Bread.
