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.

Is there any meal greater than breakfast? Maybe it’s the endless number of options or the fact that it’s the first meal of the day, but breakfast food is one of my favorite kinds. So why not take a classic breakfast food, like the infamous buttermilk waffle, and transform it into a layer cake? I thought this would be a fun way to enjoy a breakfast food for dessert, and I’m sure thatย Leslie Knope would agree it’s the best excuse to eat cake for breakfast.
