Sweet, Sugary, and Everything Nice...
This afternoon I decided to bake some cookies. I originally wanted to make Ginger Molasses Cookies, but sadly was out of ground ginger. So cinnamon sugar cookies is what I shall make. This was my first time making this kind of cookie so was hoping they came out good. And they did!! Now all I want to do is eat them , and share with you the recipe so you too can enjoy.
Let's start off with the ingredients you will need:
- 2 cups - All-Purpose Flour
- 1 teaspoon - Baking Soda
- 1 1/2 teaspoons - Cornstarch
- 1 teaspoon - Ground Cinnamon
- 1/4 teaspoon - Salt
- 3/4 cups - Melted Butter
- 1 1/4 cups - Brown Sugar
- 1 Large Egg
- 2 teaspoons - Vanilla Extract
- 1/3 cup - Granulated Sugar, for rolling
Now that you have gathered all the wonderful things to help make the cookies, let's get to baking!
- Take the flour, baking soda, cornstarch, cinnamon, and salt into a large bowl. Now put that aside.
- Next, in a medium size bowl, whisk together the melted butter and brown sugar until there are no more clumps left. Whisk in the egg, and then the vanilla after. Pour the wt ingredients into that dry ingredients bowl. Mix that together with a spatula or a large spoon. Keep in mind the dough will be soft, but thick. Put the bowl in the fridge for 2 hours ( or up to 3 days), either timeframe the chilling is mandatory.
- For the two hour wait you can do whatever you so choose, I chose to watch some more iZombie.
- After those 2 hours of binge watching iZombie, the dough is ready to be baked. Preheat the oven for 325F degrees. Line a baking pan with parchment paper, or silicone baking mats.
- Now each rolled ball you will make will be 2 tablespoons of the dough. Once you roll them, roll each ball in the granulated sugar.
- Once they are all rolled and sugar coated, you can pop those bad boys in the oven for 10 minutes.
- Do keep huge spaces between each ball, as they do expand a lot in the baking process.
- When you take them out, don't be alarmed when they seem a bit more soft in the center, that is what is supposed to happen. Let them cool on the baking pan for 10 minutes before transferring onto a wire rack to cool completely.
- Cookies that are kept at room temperature will last up to 7 days, frozen up to 3 months.
Whoof! Now that all that hard work is done, sit back relax and enjoy a cookie or two while relaxing. Or like me, while watching more of iZombie.
Have a fantastic afternoon!
