Cinnamon Squares

READY IN: 55mins
Recipe by Tracy K

This is a delicious, easy-to-make cinnamon cake that is wonderful for dessert or just as a snack cake! I usually just dust it with powdered sugar instead of using a frosting, but cream cheese frosting would go nicely with it.

Yum! Love it with some cold milk. I made this earlier and didn't get to try it warm but it's nice at room temperature. It's very sweet and I don't think I could have it with frosting. This is as sweet as I'd want it. Great texture too, especially nice and slightly crispy around the edges. Thanks Tracy
