Cinnamon Chunkies

READY IN: 40mins
Recipe by Annacia

These slightly chewy cinnamon bar cookies are made with a cinnamon swirl added to the batter. *UPDATE: As of Aug 31 '09 I have reduced the amount of sugar from 1 1/2 to 1 cup.

My friends loved them, but I found them to be a little on the bland side. I would maybe keep the original amount of sugar, but do half granulated and half brown. Also, I used margarine...I would strongly recommend you use REAL butter! lol! Don't skimp! I'd add more cinnamon next time too...
