I made these cookies for a cookie exchange we hosted last year, and when planning for the holidays this year, these cookies were the only thing Shelby requested. Ok, maybe not the only thing, but definitely one of the top three. I realized I never shared the recipe, so I wanted to be sure to rectify that. These cookies have the perfect combo of sugar and spice. You can leave them plan or decorate them. We opted to dip half the cookie in white chocolate and decorate with sprinkles. I bet they would also be delicious drizzled with dark chocolate. Something to try next time…
We recently filmed us making this recipe for a video that is now live on our YouTube Channel. Pull out or go by the ingredients listed below and you can make the cookies right alongside us!
