Scent Inspired Cookies- Easy Chocolate Chip Apple Cinnamon Cookies

One of my fondest memories about growing up was coming into our house right after my mom had baked something.  The smell was heavenly and it just made me feel so happy and excited.  My mom is an amazing cook/baker, especially around the holidays. She made the best treats around Christmas time and I loved it!  There are certain smells that just remind me of home and being a kid and I just LOVE it! Cinnamon and baked goods are definitely scents that just bring me back to my childhood and all the good things that came with.  When I smell cinnamon, I immediately think about the holidays and all the fun times I had with my mom and my family.  Since it's the holiday season and I love my house smelling wonderful all the time, I decided to pick up the Glade® CHERISH THE PRESENT™ Jar Candle, which inspired me to make these super easy and oh so delicious apple cinnamon cookies. 

This is what you'll need for the cookies (makes 24 cookies):
1 package of spice cake mix
1 bag of chocolate chips
1 1/2 cups of applesauce
2 tsp ground cinnamon

1) Mix all the ingredients together in a bowl.
2) Spoon batter onto a greased baking sheet.
3) Bake for 12 minutes at 350 degrees.

And that's it!  Seriously so easy to make and they are so good!!  I ate about half the batch myself!

I thought that this would be a great gift idea for a teacher or neighbor.  So I decorated a chips can with paper and twine,  I also made a fun printable tag to go with it and tied it to the twine. You can get the printable here.

I put the cookies into cupcake liners and then put them into the can.  It is a super easy way to give cookies to friends.#ad 4-Ingredient-apple-cinnamon-cookies-recipe #HolidayWithGlade (13)
I really do love baking and having my house smell wonderful, like baked goods, but I don't love eating a whole batch of cookies... I just can't control myself.  So I don't bake a ton.  I do want my house smelling like the holidays, so I picked up these three products from Glade®.

I found the Glade® Limited Edition Winter Collection at Fred Meyer.  They had it on display in the middle of the cleaning and air freshener aisle.  They have several different fragrances, but the CHERISH THE PRESENT™ Apple Cinnamon really stood out to me.  Each fragrance in the Limited Edition Winter Collection is meant to make you feel the holidays, not just smell them.  And the names are meant to encapsulate the ironic spirit of the holidays, names like BE AT PEACE™ and SEND A LITTLE LOVE™.

The jar candles and wax melts are perfect to have going throughout the day to give your house that wonderful smell and bring joy.

And the premium room sprays are great to get an instant smell, like when you have company coming over. 

I just love all the wonderful smells of the holidays and I especially love all the memories that they bring! What is your favorite fragrance that reminds you of the holidays?  Make sure to check out the Glade® Limited Edition Winter Collection so you can make your house smell and feel like the holidays.
