Cinnamon

Teena has a post about cinnamon. I’m not a health nut. I just don’t have the patience to think about more than I already am. I know what I like, I know (more or less) what is high in fat and calories and I make my decisions as I go. I know raw onions make me really sick so I avoid those.

The cinnamon thing was interesting though. I’ve been taking vitamins and a few times a month I actually pick the jar up from my desk and swallow one. The cinnamon would be simpler. I like adding it to coffee for instance. After reading Teena’s post I wanted to look up cinnamon recipes. What comes to mind first though are those delicious and sinful buns, rolled up with cinnamon and icing. Too yummy! All the cinnamon roll recipes use a bread machine. So I didn’t spend much time on them. I don’t use a bread machine. Seems a bit of a cop out.

Chewy Cinnamon Cookies

Ingredients:
2 cups graham cracker crumbs
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
1 cup butter
1/4 cup white sugar
1 1/4 cups packed brown sugar
2 large eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Directions:

1. Preheat an oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Stir together graham cracker crumbs, flour, cinnamon, baking soda, and salt in a mixing bowl; set aside.

2. Beat the butter, white sugar, and brown sugar with an electric mixer in a large bowl until smooth. Beat in the eggs one at a time, allowing each egg to blend into the butter mixture before adding the next. Mix in vanilla. Mix in the flour mixture. Scoop the dough out onto ungreased baking sheets by rounded spoonfuls.
3. Bake in the preheated oven until slightly browned at the edges, 9 to 11 minutes.
