    I just love sugar cookies.  I like to make them. I have been having fun decorating them.  I love to eat them too!  

I wanted something a little bit warmer this time.  Something with a little more depth of flavor.  

So I replaced half the sugar in my go-to sugar cookies with brown sugar and added just a bit of cinnamon.  The results were exactly what I was going for.

    These cookies are great for rolling and cutting.  If you want a strong cinnamon flavor, you will want to add more.  I just wanted enough to warm up the flavor slightly.  I think it is the perfect twist but won’t upset sugar cookie purists.
