Ultra-soft and chewy cookies with browned butter and lots of cinnamon. And because I love you, Maple Pecan Buttercream Frosting to top them off. Because everything is better with frosting.
So what are you guys getting the men in your life for Christmas this year? I’m hounding everyone I know. Why are man-gifts so hard? When Eric’s mom asked him for a wish list he gave her this:
1. Dad’s old baseball mitt
Like, seriously? I’m supposed to walk into Best Buy and be like, “The Electronics. Yeah, I want all of them.”
I need help guys. Although I suppose advice would be pointless because Eric reads every word of my blog. Any suggestions you make are going to be read. You’re going to have to speak in code. Can you PLEASE stop being so supportive Eric? I’m trying to con people into being thoughtful for me.
He also told me that he was thinking of asking for a Nintendo, and I said sure as long as you buy your own vampire coffin to go with it.
Here’s Truman trying to hide his gaming addiction. Do they make child-size vampire coffins?
Well even if I don’t buy any presents for my husband at least I’ve got cookie plates for the neighbors COVERED this year. Buried Reese’s Cookies, Nutella-Stuffed Gingerbread Cookies, Candy Lasses, Buried Cherry Cookies, Butter Pecans, to name a few.
I’ve got one more for you today and it’s a DOOZIE guys. In a good way. Super soft, browned butter cookies full of cinnamon, topped with this Maple Pecan Frosting I posted a while back. It’s a match made in heaven my friends.
The cookies are adapted from my favorite Chocolate Chip Cookies, which are actually not my favorite anymore. Man talk about false advertising. They were my favorite back before I knew about browned butter. Can you blame me? (By the way, that recipe is still killer, don’t be afraid to make it. The only thing I change is to use all butter and brown it.)
The other thing that makes these cinnamon cookies super flavorful is the two full tablespoons of Rodelle Pure Vanilla Extract I put in them. Vanilla is just the best thing ever right? These cookies are Day 3 for Rodelle’s 10 Days of Cookies. Click the image below to get the recipes from fellow bloggers as they are published this week! So fun.
