Sugar & Spice Cookies

This recipe was a bit of an experiment. I knew I wanted cookies but I did not have chocolate chips and I only had 1/4 cup of white sugar so I made up these little yummies!!! I hope you enjoy!!!

Sugar & Spice Cookies

1/4 cup granulated sugar
1 1/4 cup packed light brown sugar
1 cup butter melted (yes melted will explain later)
1 tsp. vanilla
2 eggs
2 1/4 all purpose flour
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
3 tsp cinnamon 

Preheat oven to 375

Okay to explain the butter. I did not have it at room temp so I placed it in the microwave for 45 second just trying to soften it and it ended up melting. You can use softened butter but the cookies will not be soft like this. 
Cream butter, both sugars and vanilla really well. Add in the eggs and beat until combined. 
Place in the freezer for 5 minutes while combining dry ingredients (this makes it easier to work with). 
Combine in a separate bowl flour, baking soda, salt and cinnamon and mix well. 
Take wet ingredients out of the freezer and beat for 1 minute. 
Stir in dry ingredients, you wanna only stir in about 1/3 of it at a time to make combining easier.
Mix well
Drop by teaspoons onto a cookie sheet. 
Bake for 8 minutes until lightly golden. 
Cool and enjoy!
