I love cinnamon, because it makes me feel good. Just the smell of it instantly brings back warm and fuzzy memories of home. Even more than that, these days cinnamon is highly touted for its health benefits. Regardless of the memories it invokes or the health benefits, most can't deny anything made with cinnamon tastes good. Below are several of my favorite recipes made with cinnamon.
I remember the first time I ever had Snickerdoodles I was visiting my Aunt Mary in Chicago almost 40 years ago. Yes, they made that much of an impression. To this day, I always make a double batch of Snickerdoodles. One is baked right then and the other is frozen, in batches, for later.
For the serious cinnamon lover, try this recipe for Ulitmate Snickerdoodles.
My husband still tells the story of how our home was filled with the wonderful aroma of cinnamon and freshly baked bread for a couple of weeks straight. We were up to our elbows in cinnamon rolls trying to find the Ultimate Cinnamon Roll recipe, and we did. If you don't have the time to make Ultimate Cinnamon Roll recipe you can make the dough in the bread machine. Even less time? This recipe for Easy Cinnamon Rolls is pretty good as well.
This is a tasty fall recipe for Apple Spice Cake. Not only is it made with cinnamon, but you'll find nutmeg, allspice and apple schnapps in the recipe, too.
Apples are the perfect fruit to go with cinnamon. Below are a couple of other recipes that pair apples and cinnamon together.
