Cinnamon Crunchies

Here is a perfect recipe for the Victoria Day Long weekend. I really hope you will try it out, it's a very simple recipe! Be sure to start with a very clean counter.

Cinnamon Crunchies

2 cups flour
1/4 cup sugar
1 tbsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 cup butter at room temperature
3/4 cup milk
1 egg

Mix all dry ingredients together. With a beater, mix in the butter, egg and milk, until crumbly. Use a spatula to mix until moistened.

Flour your counter and your rolling pin well, dump out the mix onto the counter and roll out to about 1/2 inch thickness.

Now you will need some more butter, brown sugar and cinnamon.

Spread a thin layer of butter on the rolled out dough, sprinkle with brown sugar and cinnamon. Roll this up into a log, and cut into either 6 large pieces, or 12 small ones! Place in greased muffin tins.

Bake at 400 degrees Fahrenheit for approximately 20 minutes.

Don't over think this recipe, it is simple, and if it is sticky, add more flour. If it's falling apart, mush it together and put it in the muffin tins.

The most difficult part is the clean up of the counter!

A variation on this recipe that I sometimes use, is to finely chop an apple and sprinkle that on top of the brown sugar before you roll it up. If you want, when they are cool, you can mix some icing sugar and milk until a smooth consistency and drizzle over top. This adds a bit of extra sweetness if you want. Have fun, and enjoy!

This will taste so yummy with morning coffee, outside in the sunshine. I can't wait!

Thanks for stopping by.
