5 Comforting, Delicious and Perfect-for-Fall Cinnamon Recipes

IN Relaxed -

When the summer ends and colder weather comes, we all like to sit in a warm room enjoying tea and delicious treats. Cinnamon is a sweet spice that comes from Sri Lanka and it goes great in combination with apples and pumpkins. Of course, there are many other recipes, because let’s face it, it goes well with basically everything. You can put it in bread, cakes, coffee, ice cream, sweet pastries and puddings, in whatever you choose to make. You can add it to red wine, and of course, drink it in a tea. It is best to buy it in small quantities so it stays fresh and the flavour doesn’t disappear.

Check out these delicious, comforting cinnamon recipes that you can make, that are perfect for the fall:

  • 1 large egg
  • 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract

How to make it:

  1. Beat butter, 1/2 cup granulated sugar and brown sugar in a mixing bowl. You can do it with an electric mixer until it becomes creamy. Add an egg and vanilla and beat well. Put flour, baking powder and salt in a medium bowl and add to the butter mixture. Beat on low speed until it is combined well. Put in pecans.
  2. Divide the dough in half and use your hands to shape each portion into a 6-inch round log. You can put a bit of flour on your hands so they don’t get sticky. Wrap each log in wax paper and freeze for at least 1 hour, until it gets firm.
  3. Preheat the oven to 350°F.
  4. Unwrap the dough and leave it at room temperature for 5 minutes. Combine the remaining 1/4 cup of granulated sugar and cinnamon on a shallow plate. Roll the logs in the sugar mixture, then slice each into 24 (1/4-inch-thick) cookies. Place the cookies apart on ungreased baking sheets.
  5. Bake, one batch at a time, 10 to 12 minutes, until they get lightly brown.

Tip: You can make more dough and freeze for up to 3 months. This way you don’t have to make it often, just take it from the freezer and bake it.
