Cinnamon Nut cookies

Another cookie recipe! (Man, I love cookies)

Today was a super rainy day so I decided bake some cinnamon cookies, because what’s better than your house smelling like cinnamon and vanilla on a cold rainy day?

This cookie recipe is slightly different than the others because it calls for a few tablespoons of almond flour along with all purpose flour. You can skip it, but using it will give the cookie a nice nutty flavour. One thing to keep in mind is that these cookies will increase in size after baking, so keeping it at 2 inches before baking should give you a decently sized cookie 🙂

Let’s move on to the recipe 😀

Makes : 15 cookies


  • 2 cups all purpose flour
  • ½ tsp baking powder
  • ¼ tsp baking soda
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 3 tblsp almond flour (optional)
  • ½ cup melted butter
  • ½ cup granulated sugar
  • 1/3 cup brown light sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 2 tblsp milk
  • 15 pecan halves (for topping)


  1. Preheat oven to 180C or 350F
  2. In a bowl, mix the flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, almond flour and cinnamon. Set aside
  3. In another bowl, whisk the melted butter with the granulated sugar and brown sugar
  4. Next, add the egg, vanilla and milk. Whisk until well combined
  5. Add the dry ingredients to the wet ones and mix until you have a soft dough
  6. Make small balls and flatten the cookie top (2 inch in diameter). Place a pecan on top
  7. Bake for 12 minutes. Allow to cool.
