Cinnamon Cookies


Now that airlines don’t serve complimentary meals in-flight anymore, us passengers have become hard-pressed for even the slightest bit of sustenance on a cross-country flight. You’d be lucky to land a couple bags of peanuts and a small cup of something to drink. And if you’re flying American Airlines, you’d have to be a celebrity to get anything more than a cup of water it seems.

That said, have you ever been on a Delta Airlines flight? Delta actually gives you a choice between cookies or peanuts. Always get the cookies. Trust me.

Made by a company called Biscoff, these cookies that I speak of are delightfully crunchy cinnamon discs that I could probably eat about 1500 of. Om nom nom nom. I scoured the internet for the recipe, but couldn’t find an exact replica. So I decided to try this one in the hopes of hitting the cinnamon cookie jackpot. While the cookies the recipe yielded were delicious, they weren’t very close to the Biscoff cookies. These cookies are similar to snickerdoodles – wonderfully light and buttery – but Biscoff cookies are a bit denser and crunchy – more like “biscuit” cookies, actually. Alas, my search continues…
