Cinnamon Sugar Cookies
These were accidentally good. I'm no baker, and I hate to admit it, but this was pretty much my first time making cookies. Although the cookies got a little friendly with each other because I didn't space them out enough, they actually tasted good and had the right consistency — they were chewy and moist, surprisingly. Oh wait, no, no, no... I'm going about this completely the wrong way. I'm supposed to inspire confidence in my intro. Well then, how about this? These are the best cinnamon sugar cookies in the world. You won't need any other recipe after this. Why anybody would bother with cookies out of a can is beyond me because this is pretty easy, and if even I can do it, then certainly you can too. Then again, how could anything with this much butter turn out badly... Click here to see easy cookie recipes.
