I’ll be the first to admit that I am definitely not a chef or a baker…. my husband would probably second that, hehe. However, whenever hubby grills we always season our food with McCormick spices and I am slowly integrating them into my attempts at cooking in the kitchen. And so when I got the opportunity to try out a variety of McCormick products I was pretty excited to give it a shot and McCormick made it really easy for me because they have this awesome Look Book feature on their website with tons of great recipe ideas!
The Spring Look Book has all sorts of recipes separated into the following categories: cookies/cupcakes, spring cakes, brunch gathering and springtime complements. There is a handy little heart next to each recipe with a “+” symbol inside it and if you click this heart that recipe will be added to the “My Look Book” feature so that you can share with your family and friends the recipes you are trying out – how awesome is that?
Now since I am not an expert baker I decided it would be best to go with a recipe that didn’t seem too challenging to start with and so I went with the Double Cinnamon Sugar Cookies. In this recipe I was able to use quite a few McCormick products including Cream of Tarter, Pure Vanilla Extract, and Ground Cinnamon. And here is whatcha need to do:
Double Cinnamon Sugar Cookies
Makes 4 1/2 dozen cookies.
Prep Time: 15 minutes
Refrigerate Time: 2 hours
Cook Time: 6 to 8 minutes per batch
2 3/4 cups flour
1 tablespoon plus 2 teaspoons McCormick® Cinnamon, Ground, divided
2 teaspoons McCormick® Cream of Tartar
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 3/4 cups sugar, divided
1 cup (2 sticks) butter, softened
2 teaspoons McCormick® Pure Vanilla Extract
1. Mix flour, 2 teaspoons of the cinnamon, cream of tartar, baking soda and salt in medium bowl. Set aside. Beat 1 1/2 cups of the sugar and butter in large bowl with electric mixer on medium speed until light and fluffy. Add eggs and vanilla; mix well. Gradually beat in flour mixture on low speed until well mixed. Refrigerate 2 hours or until firm.
2. Preheat oven to 400°F. Mix remaining 1/4 cup sugar and remaining 1 tablespoon cinnamon in small bowl. Shape dough into 1-inch balls. Roll in cinnamon sugar mixture to coat. Place 2 inches apart on baking sheets.
My cookies were a huge hit with the hubby, Dilly, and Sugar…. oh and with me, hehe. I highly suggest checking out the McCormick Look Book and trying a recipe or two out. I think I’m gonna sit here with a plate of Double Cinnamon Sugar Cookie and a glass of ice cold milk while searching for my next McCormick recipe to make!
I participated in a campaign on behalf of Mom Central Consulting for McCormick. I received product samples and a promotional item to thank me for participating.
