Do y’all have certain foods that remind you of certain seasons? I say food, because after all, there’s 2 things people do: sleep and eat. We’re all just bigger, less hairy versions of Garfield. Anyway, when I think of Autumn, almost instantly in my mind pops the idea of like, pumpkins, and apples, cinnamon, Halloween, but also, food. Because that’s what we all function on. And, combining all that together, what do you get? BOOM! The delicious, hot, steamin’, fresh out the oven apple and cinnamon cookies fellas!!! Because WHO needs Fall Parties, when you can have a party all by yourself, in the comfort of your OWN sofa, with a big, big, biiiig bowl of cookies, a big glass of milk for the big fella you are, and A TV! That’s my kinda party if you ask me! Anyway, so today I am sharing with you my absolute favourite recipe of apple and cinnamon cookies, aka autumn in a treat! I hope you enjoy these as much as I do (well that would be impossible) and well let’s get poppin’!
