Cinnamon Crispies are baked treats with a cinnamon and sugar filling. And with a blend of regular and brown sugar, they’re a real treat.
By Prathima Rao
It’s that favorite time of year again – houses lit up, the smell of sweet treats being baked in the air, malls filled with exciting shoppers, Christmas carols being sung by little kids. And these are enough to get one into the spirit of Christmas. Friends and family drop by to visit to us and exchange their Christmas stories. And what better way to treat them than with a plateful of freshly baked cookies or cakes. Giving, sharing…is all part of Christmas..right??!
I was hunting for a recipe to get myself warmed up for the Christmas preparations planned for next week and these Cinnamon-y treats met the criterion to the ‘ T ‘.
Cinnamon Crispies are baked treats with a cinnamon and sugar filling. And with a blend of regular and brown sugar, no wonder these can be quite a treat..Baked a batch of these last evening and they tasted yummm..The outsides are bit crispy & crusty and the center slightly soft which reminded me of a muffin or maybe a bread even.. But not that soft of course. Maybe flattening then a little more will make the centers even more crispier, if you prefer it that way.
Some traditional recipes I came across even require yeast to make these. The one I tried out makes use of baking powder and baking soda. Very little sugar is added and these have just a hint of sweetness.
These make wonderful breakfast treats or for brunch or with afternoon tea or late evening snack or a mid night snack!! Yes, basically good for anytime of the day but even more heavenly with a cup of hot tea or coffee..
I wanted the outsides a still more crispier and baked the second batch today morning. Go through my notes to see how I baked them to get a crispier outside.Print
