It seems like every time I venture out on a random or purposeful shopping adventure I always migrate towards the cinnamon scented or flavored items. It is very orgasmic for me. Smelling the yummy scents, tasting the delicious cinnamon foods, drinking the hot and cold cinnamon flavored drinks, everything that involves cinnamon is on my hit list. During Christmas time and the winter season cinnamon items seem more accessible. This puts a smile on my face! I just can't say no to all of those wonderful things!
Having said that, here are some of my all time favorite items involving cinnamon:
Cinnamon apple chips:
Recipe: Preheat the oven to 250 degrees . In a small bowl, combine the sugar and cinnamon. Using a serrated knife or mandoline, thinly slice the apples crosswise, discarding the seeds and both ends. Arrange in a single layer on parchment-paper-lined baking sheets; sprinkle with the cinnamon sugar.
Bake the apple slices, turning every half hour, until dry, 1 1/2 to 2 hours. Remove and transfer to racks to cool. Store in an airtight container. Serves 22 Recipe: Rachel Ray Magazine
