DAY 3: Cinnamon Brown Sugar Blondies
These bar cookies are as simple as they come: One Bowl, No Mixer Needed, No Waiting for Butter to Soften, No Last Minute Trip to the Store for Ingredients, No Scooping Multiple Batches of Cookie Dough, No Waiting by the Oven to Switch Baking Sheets
And they are super good: like snickerdoodles, but without all of the work.
Some days it is just all about simple.
