Almond Cinnamon Cookies
It's been about two months in quarantine and while I miss working and seeing my friends, I've enjoyed having the extra time to be creative and focus on trying different outlets. Now don't get me wrong, I think I've spent the most of my time watching Netflix and scrolling through Instagram and Tik Tok.
Tik Tok has taken social media (and the world) by storm. While the platform is way more popular with Generation Z, more specifically high schoolers, millennials have started joining the app and creating their own community.
Now Tik Tok offers a lot; I've found lawyers, doctors, counselors, and therapists, all giving advice amongst the dance trends and lip syncs. There's something for everyone.
However, my favorite thing I've found is all of the baking/cooking videos because I love food and I love to cook. People are making homemade pasta, bread, chicken, cupcakes, and more!
I haven't tried all of them because there are so many, but I did find a really tasty and very simple peanut butter cookie recipe that I made and LOVED made by Tik Tok user @everydaychiffon.
Sometimes peanut butter cookies are a lot flavor wise so I decided to tweak the recipe a bit to better suit my current taste bud needs. I saw in the comments on the original post that someone swapped out the peanut butter for Nutella and did white chocolate chips instead of semi-sweet, but I've never been a huge fan of Nutella.
Over the last year, I've become OBSESSED with cinnamon. It's tasty and warm and I feel like it's such an inviting spice. I swapped out some of the ingredients and made these really tasty almond cinnamon cookies. I hope you like them as much as I do.
Warning: these things are addicting; I ate like 90% of the batch last time I made them. Also, these cookies are super soft and gooey so be careful about them breaking in half when you pick them up.
