Cinnamon Butter Cookie Recipe #BringtheCOOKIES

Howdy all!  My name is Amanda and I blog at  I like to make really sweet and over the top desserts.  The more calories the better.

You can imagine what my New Years Resolutions are every year. 😉

Last year I created a delicious marshmallow and red velvet cookies for Katrina and they were a BIG hit in our family.  I mean big.  I was pretty certain that I would not be able to top that , so I decided to go back to basics.  This is a classes cookie with a little (yet awesome) twist!
