Recipe by Sherrybeth
With autumn coming here in Louisiana, I decided to drag out a few of my grandmother's recipes that she had stuck inside her old cookbooks. It amazes me at some of the ingredients that you find in some of these recipes and how you think "that will never work" but they always seem to turn out really good. When I saw Rice Krispies in this recipe I thought "no way that is going to work" but I made it and believe it or not, it's really good.

- 1 teaspoon cinnamon
