"These are yummy cinnamon cookies made with graham cracker crumbs. If you want a little variation, throw in a bag of butterscotch chips. My kids love them plain. I find it easiest to freeze the dough in logs, then slice and cook them as I want them. Enjoy!" — Connie

graham cracker crumbs
1 1/2 cups
1 1/4 cups
packed brown sugar
These cookies were super easy to make with a short list of ingredients. A couple of things: *made a lot more cookies than 24 (I used a 2t scoop and ended up with around 60), *I baked them for the full 11 minutes and they were perfectly light and just a little chewy *Used parchment paper instead of ungreased sheet *Let them cool on the sheet before transferring to a wire rack since they were soft while they were still warm My husband said they taste like chewy gingersnaps, I think they taste like cinnamon cake. Great recipe, and a definate keeper!!
It's just me to change a recipe using my experience & other's reviews soooo here's what I did differently: More cinnamon - half teaspoon more; subbed half cup whole wheat flour for white; 3/4c white sugar & 1/2c brown. With the sugar in the crumbs, nearly 1/4c in 2c crumbs, I couldn't add all the sugar. They were plenty sweet. 'Could probably reduce it even more. I chilled the dough then shaped it into a log on wax paper, rolled it, froze & sliced. Mine took longer to bake, as expected with refrigeration, & they were still chewy even with browned edges. 'Not the prettiest cookies & they do spread (less with wheat flour), but they did the trick for using up graham cracker crumbs.
As an inexperienced cook, I found this recipe pretty easy to make. Two things though, and I'm not sure if this is common knowledge or not, but I made half the cookies on flat 'air flow' baking sheets with no sides/edges, and half of the batch with a regular baking sheet. The cookies seemed to really flatten out like pancakes on the air flow sheet, but on the other baking sheet they were fine. As well, I added a bit more cinnamon, because I love the stuff, but it really ended up being overpowering once they were done. Hope that helps any baking newbies out there!
These flatten out A LOT, so spread them far apart on the cookie sheet and 350 is a littlee to hot because the middle doesn't cook as fast as the outside. On the otherhand, they taste VERY good !!
These were great warm, right out of the oven and still great the next day crumbled over vanilla ice cream. All 5 of us loved them, and we will be making this a regular addition to our dessert favorites. Can't wait to try it again with butterscotch chips. Thanks!
Easy to make. Very subtle cookie ... not rich or overly sweet. I think I was hoping for gooey cookies with a very "cinnamony" taste. I agree they taste like a cinnamon cake.
Very easy recipe. I used a cookie scoop and got almost 4 dozen. They do spread so be careful how many you bake at a time. But they were delicious and the house smells great when you're baking them. Added them to my Christmas cookie collection.
