I love cookies (especially these sugar spice cookies), and I love trying out different cookie recipes. The reality is, though, that more often than not, I end up making chocolate chip cookies because I can practically make them in my sleep.
Sugar Spice Cookies
Making a new cookie requires all the more patience and much more nervous anticipation for what they’ll turn out to be. Everybody claims they have the best cookie recipe, but I’ve tried out some “best” cookie recipes before, and they weren’t so fabulous in my opinion.
I know that sounds kind of snobby, but I mean it in the most un-snobby way. Like, have you ever come across a recipe in a published magazine where the recipe originated from some posh bakery on the East Coast and is claimed to be the best [insert baked good] ever?
And then you make them only to find out that the baked good was sort of just meh. Because I have, and it sucks. It makes you much more weary of the “best such and such” title regarding a certain food.
So knowing that I feel this way, you must trust me when I say these sugar spice cookies are simply the best spice cookies. They’re a cross between a gingerbread cookie and a teddy graham.
They’re chewy in the center and crisp on the outside. And they’ll all be eaten before you know it. I haven’t met a person who didn’t love these cookies.
They don’t need any fridge time, so you can enjoy these babies within 20 minutes. And let me tell you, you will enjoy these. Promise.
