BREAKING NEWS! Fall's new favorite cookie has arrived!

These snickerdoodles are elevated by adding dried cinnamon apples and then rolling them in chai spiced sugar before baking. You may just never go back to making any other type of fall cookie after this.

While doing some online shopping on Nuts.com I stumbled upon dried cinnamon apples and they sounded interesting and I knew that I had to make these cookies with them. You should definitely give them a try! I can't wait to make a few more recipes with them.
