Cinnamon Sticks


These little morsels of yumminess came courtesy of my Mom this weekend.  After the little miss was baptized on Sunday, we had friends and family back to our house for a light breakfast - caramel pecan rolls, these cinnamon sticks, cookies, cinnamon sugar donut muffins, a ton of fresh fruit, coffee and juice.

I had intended on making breakfast burritos as well, but the crazy week got the best of me, and time ran out.  I'm pretty sure no one went hungry because of my lack of time.

This recipe only has 7 ingredients and two of those are the cinnamon and sugar you roll them in.  Can't yell at me for a long ingredient list today!

Cinnamon Sticks
1/2 c. butter
1/2 c. Crisco
5 T. sugar, additional for rolling
2 c. flour
1 t. salt
1 t. vanilla
1 T. cinnamon

Mix first six ingredients in order given.  Shape dough into rolls about the size of your finger.  Cut into 2 inch lengths.  Bake at 350 degrees until light tan, about 20 minutes.  While warm roll in mixture of cinnamon and sugar.

Store in an airtight container and they will last several days.

For freshness that is.  I'd be shocked if they aren't gone within two days, and if you are taking them to an event, much shorter.  These would be great for the holidays all wrapped up for neighbors, co-workers, or a cookie swap.

Hear that girls?  I'm making this one come December!

Oh, and for those that are interested.  The article in the newspaper featuring me, the fam and my blog will be coming out next Thursday, October 20th.  Here's to crossing my fingers and hoping I don't come off like a dork.
