It’s my birthday week! I mean, I guess yesterday technically started my birthday week, but my internet was down so I could not share this post with you. I wanted to take this week to share things I love with you. This post focuses on two things I love: clearance aisles and cinnamon.
I am obsessed with the clearance aisle at Target. Well, I’m pretty much obsessed with Target in general, but mostly because that is where I do my extreme couponing. Even if I do not have a coupon for something, I love all the weird finds with those little red stickers on them. This weekend I found that little heart shaped plate in the top picture for under a dollar. Valentine’s may be over, but my affection for everything adorable clearly isn’t.
My two true loves when it coms to baking are vanilla extract and cinnamon. I have had multiple people write me about recipes claiming there was an error with the vanilla extract in it. Nope. I just really like vanilla extract. It tastes awesome and smells like what I want heaven to smell like. Then there is cinnamon. Oh. Man. That is why when girls at work offered me this recipe, I jumped at the chance to make it. These cookies are so simple, yet so tasty. They are soft, doughy, and rolled in cinnamon sugar bliss. Try them for yourself.
