It’s already day 4 of Christmas Cookies Week. So far I’ve brought Spiced Christmas Cookies, Nana’s Molasses Cookies and  S’mores Drop Cookies.

Today I am sharing these incredible Cinnamon Cookies.

They are a must make every Christmas. They just taste like Christmas, in every single bite.

  1. They are super easy to make, with ingredients you probably already have.
  2. They taste like Christmas, and make your house smell amazing, plus they are wonderfully soft.

How do I best store cookies?

Most cookies are best stored in an airtight container and usually last about a week.

Cookie jars are fine if you plan to eat your cookies within a couple of days, but they usually dry out quickly in a jar.

For best results I suggest a tupperware type container with an airtight lid.
