Baking season is here and that means cookies! The days are getting cooler, but the oven is keeping the house toasty with my Cinnamon Chocolate Chip Cookies. They’re soft and chewy with the warm spice of cinnamon throughout. White chocolate chips add a pleasant vanilla taste and beautiful pop of color. They’re perfect for dipping in a glass of milk!
Cinnamon Chocolate Chip Cookies
I have to admit I was indifferent to milk growing up—until I met my husband. I drank it in my cereal, but I never appreciated its cool creaminess like I do now.
I love to bake and he loves to eat. Every time I have a new treat for him to try, he goes and pours a tall, cold glass of milk first. He savors each bite, sipping long pulls of milk in between as if he’s a swanky food critic!
It’s pretty funny, but it’s hard not to participate in his enjoyment as well. Now, an ice cold glass of milk and cookies is my go-to for everyone! There is nothing like a cold glass of milk along with a plate of warm cookies fresh from the oven!
Washing down your cookies with the creamy goodness of milk completes the treat in a refreshing and satisfying way. It’s also a great way to ensure your kids are getting a natural source of calcium, vitamins and high-quality protein. Adults and kids alike consume 400 calories a day from beverages alone, so it’s important to remember that we also drink our nutrition. Farm fresh real dairy milk is rich in 9 essential nutrients.
I purchase whole milk for my family because I prefer the taste and I’ve found it gives you the best results for baking compared to non-dairy milk products. Also, there is no added sugar, salt or gum thickeners which are found in non-dairy alternatives—do you know what’s in your milk? MilkLife.com has the answers and more!
Only farm fresh milk, vitamin A and vitamin D are the ingredients in dairy milk! If you like to make your own queso fresco like I do, real dairy milk is a must if you want successful results and the best taste!
Plus, milk costs about 25 cents per 8-ounce serving, compared to almond milk which averages 45 cents per serving.* This means I’m getting more nutrients for my money and my grocery budget loves it!
Plus, milk is so versatile. We can start our days with a healthy Blueberry Cottage Cheese Smoothie and end on a sweet note with these Cinnamon Chocolate Chip Cookies! Soft and chewy sugar cookies are spiced with cinnamon making these the perfect cookie for fall. You can even make them with dark chocolate chips for an exotic twist!
I hope your family enjoys these cookies with a frosty cup of milk. Be sure to check out my other cookie recipes for all your baking needs and sign up by email to receive a free Christmas Cookie ebook with exclusive recipes. Cheers!
