If you asked me what my favorite cookie in the whole wide world is, I would not hesitate for even one second. There are chocolate chip cookies, and then there is everything else, cookie-wise (although my grandma’s molasses cookies are a close second). So me being me, I am constantly messing around with chocolate chip cookie dough to see how many ways I can come up with making my favorites, and that is how this recipe for cinnamon sugar was born. Ready to spice up your chocolate chippers? Let’s make them!
As you probably know, if you asked me what my favorite flavor was, I would say bacon. (Yes, I consider bacon a flavor.) But if you asked the Southern husband, I am betting that lemon would be in his top three, if not Number One altogether. So every now and then I figure out a lemony treat to make for him, and in this case it turned out to be these cute little lemon cheesecake bites. Lemon cheesecake, lemon topping, lemon lemon everywhere. He was one happy camper! So if you have a lemon-lover in your life too, let’s make them!

All you need are strawberries, a little sugar, a lemon, a bowl, a strainer, something to mash them with and about 20 minutes. That’s all that stands between you and homemade strawberry jam. Really!
These cookies are one of my all-time favorites, right up there with my grandma’s molasses cookies and my beloved four-ingredient Blue Dory cookies. They aren’t flashy or elegant. They aren’t even chocolate. They are a humble little concoction of brown sugar and the usual cookie ingredients, and you probably have everything you need to make them in your pantry right this minute. And when they bake, they settle down into that homemade-looking crinkly pattern you see in the picture. But that’s part of what I love about them…they are just plain easy, simple, humble and absolutely delicious cookies.
There are several things I must say IMMEDIATELY about this recipe. First of all, it is Puppy Chow for people, not puppies. It is a concoction of Chex cereal that has been coated in chocolate and peanut butter and dusted with powdered sugar, and it is utterly addictive. I actually have no idea why itRead More & Get the Recipe
