These unusual cookies are super buttery and sweetened with cinnamon sugar. They taste like the best cinnamon toast from your childhood. Must make!
So, this is it. This is "The Holidays". But for me, it just feels like a regular old Friday. It's such a different experience to be in a big city like New York this time of year. As soon as the turkey gets cleared from the table, Christmas music is playing everywhere, people are dancing in the streets and buildings are filled with over-the-top decorations that are more like art installations than ad campaigns. But here in Brigantine, I'm still moseying around my undecorated house, putzing in the garden and basking in the unusually warm weather. And, hey! Look at that. I just used three of my favorite verbs in a sentence. See, it's not so bad.
If there's one thing that always gets me into the holiday spirit, it's baking cookies. This is a most unusual recipe. I discovered it years ago on Orangette, the first blog I ever followed, and later swore it off due to its insanely high level of addictiveness. The recipe comes courtesy of Molly Wizenberg's late grandmother, and it's as quirky and retro as it is delicious. They're definitely more of a cookie than they are breakfast, but I find it perfectly acceptable to serve them whatever time of day you damn please.
