Eggless Cinnamon Sugar Cookies

 It’s the right time for these.

You know the time – the time when you’re coming to the end of a pay period and your fridge looks like you have been robbed.  This is for when your groceries are running out, but you have one hell of a sugar craving.  When you want cookies, but have no eggs… or cake mix and pumpkin because you used them the day before.

I must be in my manic phase – I cleaned the kitchen and baked cookies.  Within hours!  The next day I did allthethings – all the dishes, all the laundry, fixed Quesadilla’s dresser – which was wholly unorganized.  I found three pair of socks that weren’t together, but both socks were in the drawer!

I even went as far as to put my own clothes away!  (But I didn’t get much writing done *sad face*)

A far cry from my depressive days, for sure.  So along with allthethings, deliciousness happens.  Soft, chewy, sugary deliciousness happens on good days.

  1. I starting making homemade lollipops. so I stocked up so different flavors. It's really potent, so don't stick it directly on your tongue – I learned this the hard way; it's gross. But the smell is heavenly!

    If you make them, you'll have to tell me what you think!
