Maple Cinnamon Cookies

Are you more of a chewy cookie person or a crispy cookie person? I think the perfect cookie has a combination of both. I love it when cookies are crispy on the outside, but soft and chewy on the inside. These Maple Cinnamon Cookies are exactly that. They’re crisp around the edges, but soft with just the right amount of chewiness in the center.

Maple syrup, cinnamon, and ginger are brought together to make a sweet, yet spice filled dough. I recommend using good quality Grade A Dark Color syrup because it has a stronger maple flavor. Don’t worry, if you’re looking for something else to make with the syrup, I’ve got you covered with this Buttermilk Waffle Cake with Maple Buttercream and these Maple Cream Scones.

Caramel Apple Muffins

Halloween is one of my favorite holidays, so I’m all for celebrating it throughout October. There’s the house decorating, the pumpkin carving, the movie watching, the costume creating, and the caramel apple making. I made these Caramel Apples last year because I think they’re a classic Halloween treat, but this year I decided to mix things up a little.

Yes, these Caramel Apple Muffins now give you the excuse to eat globs of caramel first thing in the morning. You’re welcome.
