Ah the classics! They never get old! We had some cinnamon sugar mini donuts at work today and that reminded me of these similar tasting (but 20x awesome) cookies. The reward of being a baker is that you can bake anything any time of the day and still enjoy doing it (and the outcome lol). I found this recipe in my Joy the Baker cookbook. Oddly enough this recipe book is on sale right now on Amazon for 54% off (discount may vary by country)! If you’re looking for an all-in-one cookbook, I highly recommend this one. It has a good mix of sweet and savory recipes. There’s everything from pancakes, brownies to avocado fries (I know!), and leek and asparagus quiche. What more can one ask for! :D

These are my another set of midnight cookies; granted a little more work than the peanut butter cookies, but the flavors of cinnamon sugar is a lot more complex than PB on its own. Also, adding vanilla bean paste and maple syrup to these cookies took it to a whole new level. I would use maple sugar in the future because the syrup thinned out the cookie dough a bit. So the quick and simple way of making these – cream together salted butter and sugar.

Add in the maple syrup (or maple sugar). Blend.

Add in vanilla bean paste and egg. Mix well at medium speed until the mixture is fluffy. Add all purpose flour, baking soda and cream of tartar. Mix until just combined.

In a separate bowl, combine sugar and cinnamon powder.

To make 12 cookies from this dough, using a tablespoon, drop the batter into the cinnamon sugar mixture.

Roll it in cinnamon sugar to completely coat it.

Shape the dough into a ball and place it on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper.

Bake at 350F for 20 minutes. Remove from oven and cool on a wire rack.

Your cookies are ready!
