How do you talk about how grateful you are for something without sounding like you’re just bragging to no end? I suppose you could just say, “I am grateful for XYZ” but what if your heart is so full of Thankfulness and blessings that you feel like it could explode at any moment.
That’s how I feel right now as I’m typing this blog post. Don’t get my wrong, my life isn’t perfect. I have troubles and problems just like the next person. Sometimes things don’t go my way and sometimes I feel like I wish and pray and work towards goals for YEARS before I see a glimmer of them. However right now, as I sit here in my living room with my cuddly baby boy dreaming beside me and my Christmas tree lit up in the corner of the room, everything seems right in the world and my heart feels like it could just burst.
Everything just means so much more to me now that I’m a mom. Like EVERYTHING haha. Even small stuff like these cookies. Yep, even cookies.
When we were in the mountains a few weekend ago, we stopped at one of our favorite little stores and I bought a few jars of homemade apple butter. So while I was in the kitchen doing a little holiday baking, I started working on these apple butter cookies and memories from our little mountain trip were dancing around in my head.
………who knew the small things would mean so much to me now…..
Then as I worked on the recipe, it took a snickderdoole themed turn and Thomas LOVES snickerdoodles, so that made me smile.
Well by time I go done baking these Apple Butter Cookies, I was smiling from ear to ear thinking about how much Thomas was going to love these apple butter cookies that I had made with apple butter from our trip. Like I said, even the smallest things mean the world to me right now.
Is that a new mom thing? I kinda love it!
………swapped out some of the butter for apple butter and added a few dashes of cinnamon…..
These apple butter cookies are made similar to snickerdoodles but they do crackle and spread out a little but thanks to the apple butter. I used one of my favorite snickerdoodle cookie recipes, swapped out some of the butter for apple butter and added a few dashes of cinnamon. I also rolled the cookie dough in cinnamon sugar before baking them to give them an extra sweet crunch.
They’re soft and chewy on the inside with a cinnamon sugar crust! What more could you ask for in a cookie?
