Adopted recipe.These are nice and tender. I think the added sugar on the top makes them just right. You could probably mix the confectioners sugar with a little water to make a glaze for them too.

Turned out wonderful! Probably needs just a little more sugar though, maybe 1 tablespoon more (for the original recipe). I'd add some more cinnamon for a stronger flavour too. Tastes amazing with apple jam :-)
