I’m trying hard to get my head around the big kids going back to school on Thursday… really I am. I even attempted to bake for school lunches yesterday, although these biscuits turned out so good that none of the dough made it to the freezer and the handful of them that are left won’t survive until tomorrow, let alone Thursday.
Still, it is the thought that counts right?
And these cinnamon cookies are so yum, I am pretty sure I’ll be making them again next weekend, anyway.
They have some dark, sticky, black strap molasses in them which helps to make them that lovely dark brown colour. The molasses also adds a boost of iron, and with some whizzed up oats… ah who am I kidding, these are not remotely healthy, they are just a yummy treat.
If you don’t have any molasses you could use honey, or golden syrup, or just leave it out all together. You can also leave out the oats, but they help add some body to the dough and make your biscuits keep their shape better when you cook them… and it can’t hurt to have a few healthy things in there with all the cinnamon and sugar right?
They are crunchy on the edges but soft and chewy inside, and oh so cinnamoney (it is so too a word!).
