As far as I'm concerned, you can never get too much cinnamon. What a delight to find a shortbread recipe made with cinnamon.

Cinnamon Topped Shortbread, Member lindabugblue

WOW! These are excellent! Very buttery and rich. We liked them because, with the cinnamon sugar topping, they are more flavorful than plain shortbread. Mmmmmm....can't wait to make them again, they were SO easy!
