Cinnamon Schoolbook Cookies
April 29, 2013—Fearlessly Archived—Still a fun read, price & availability may have changed.
Remember the big, block letters your teacher used to draw on the blackboard when you were first learning how to read & write? Or the paper with the really wide lines and the dotted lines in between that helped you make inch-high letters? Trader Joe's Cinnamon Schoolbook Cookies are the modern-day equivalent to those, only better, because you can eat them.
These are big, block letters and numbers, about an inch high, cleverly disguised as cinnamon-flavored cookies. They actually taste quite a bit like cinnamon graham crackers, but with a crunchier, sturdier texture. With only nine calories a cookie, they taste much more indulgent than they really are. They're good with milk, coffee, or tea, and while you can simply eat them, we find that dessert or snack time becomes much more fun when you use them to make words and then eat them. We've been selling Cinnamon Schoolbook Cookies since 1998 — today, 15 years later, these kosher certified crisps are made with the same recipe and still a fantastic value, at $2.79 for each 16 ounce tub.
