Cinnamon sugar cookies are one of my daughter’s favorite cookies.  I love these because they are quick to make and delicious.

When I started this blog, I knew exactly what I wanted my main focus to be.  First and foremost, I wanted to share delicious tried and true recipes that my family enjoys.  I also wanted to offer you quick and easy recipes that everyone has time to make.  I know some people are avoiding boxed and processed foods, but sometimes they sure make things easier.  There are nights when we do not have the time for a meal or dessert that is made from scratch.  That is when these quick and easy meals come in and make you look like a master chef without requiring all your time and fuss.

These cookies are super quick and easy because they use Pillsbury Refrigerated Sugar Cookie dough.  Whenever I go into the grocery store, I always pick up a roll because it is so versatile.

Do you have big Labor Day plans? My kids are so ready for a long weekend.  I am excited about this weekend because my husband is off for EIGHT days.  Oh the projects he can help me get done around the house.  😉  I better not say that too loud or he will end up “having” to go back to work!  As for the weekend, we will be doing some swimming for sure.  It’s suppose to be a hot one and we need to get in a few more swims before the water gets too cool.  I am absolutely positive that the grill will be fired up too.  My main goal for the weekend is family time.  That is hard to come by with two teenagers and a ten year old social butterfly.
