I tried this recipe this morning and I have to say that I was disappointed. I really wanted this one to work! The recipe called for 3 tablespoons of cinnamon; I used half that amount and it was still overbearing. I made them for my 2 daughters and a friend and each one took only one bite. Then I tried them and took only one bite also. That's all I could choke down. Way too much cinnamon! The only reason I gave this 2 stars is because they rose nicely. I think the bones of the recipe are solid, but some of the ingredients still need tweaking. Besides the cinnamon, they were quite bland.
