Chocolate Cinnamon Chip Cookies

Good Morning and Happy Sunday! Today I have a recipe that’s I have been wanting to make for a good while. Chocolate and cinnamon is one of my favorite flavor combinations and this cookie doesn’t disappoint. The cinnamon chips gives the cookies a warmth fitting for the colder months coming up or for a holiday cookie platter. I slightly altered my recipe for Chocolate Crinkle Cookies, which resulted in a cookie that was soft on the inside and crispy on the outside.

Snickerdoodle Cake

Happy November! If you need a recipe for a grey day, look no further. I must admit this cake was the result of a happy accident. I was attempting to make whoopie pies, but noticed they baked more like a cake than a whoopie pie. I put the rest of the batter in a cake pan and topped it off with some cinnamon and sugar and the cake became what it needed to be. This cake pairs well with a hot beverage and a lazy Sunday. This cake is both dense and light and the cinnamon sugar topping gives it a satisfying crunch and a punch of cinnamon.

Pumpkin Pasties

Good Morning and Happy Sunday! It’s already halfway through September and I am so so ready for fall, despite the current weather hanging onto summer with all its might. I’m the kind of person to make pumpkin foods year-round, so it’s nice when it’s seasonally appropriate. If you’re looking to dive into the leaves of fall, try out these pumpkin pasties. The crust is nice and flaky and the filling is rounded out well with a medley of spices. It’s all topped with a sugar and spice mixture to give it an extra crunch. I recommend listening to the Harry Potter soundtracks while making these. It ads a certain, dare I say, magic to the whole experience.

Pumpkin Cupcakes with Marshmallow Creme Frosting

Good Morning and Happy Sunday! Though the flavors happening this week aren’t necessarily summer appropriate, I thought they’d spice things up a bit. It was a fantastic excuse to make my apartment smell like cinnamon. Not only that, but you get a bit of nutmeg, ginger, and clove to round out the pumpkin spices. To balance out the spices, I decided to pair it with a sweet marshmallow creme frosting. If you are looking for some creme cheese frosting, might I point you to the one in the Pumpkin Cutout Cookie recipe I posted in the fall?

Sassy Cinnamon Muffins

Good Morning and Happy Sunday! This week I thought I would revisit a recipe that truly lives up to its name – Sassy Cinnamon Muffins. When I was younger, I always helped my mom bake and these muffins were a firm favorite. It was a recipe that my mom made in home ec and kept ever since. One day I wanted to make these muffins by myself. I gathered all the ingredients, leveled out my measurements and put those muffins in the oven. Much to my surprise, they did not rise to the occasion.
