The recipe test for April was another dessert- a very easy and sugary snack that is so easy to make it’s stupid, and perfect for an evening snack after a long day of fun! On the menu were Cinnamon Streusel cookies, and they were delicious. We shared all around with my grandparents as we were celebrating a day on vacation in Branson. Cookies are just what you need after a long day of fun and sun!

Cinnamon Streusel Cookies
1 (16.5-ounce) package refrigerated sugar cookie dough
1/4 cup packed light brown sugar
1/4 cup finely chopped pecans
3/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg (optional)
Preheat oven to 350°; place rack in center of oven. Freeze sugar cookie dough 1 hour. Remove from freezer, and place on cutting board. Cut dough into 1/4-inch slices (about 28–32 slices); arrange 2 inches apart on 2 parchment paper–lined baking sheets. Combine brown sugar, chopped pecans, cinnamon, and, if desired, nutmeg in a small mixing bowl. Top cookies with 3/4 teaspoon streusel. Bake 12 minutes or until edges are crisp and browned. Let cool on baking sheet 3 minutes; remove to a wire rack to cool completely.
